The Role of the Ejido in Mexican Land Reform.
Whetten, Nathan L.
This document is concerned with the "ejido" system in Mexico, one in which the property rights in land are vested in the community. As a land-holding, village-type of settlement pattern, the "ejido" system is discussed in terms of land policies in early Mexico, the era of land reform, and the development and reappraisal of the "ejido" system. The author points out the need for revision to meet changing conditions in Mexico. (RL)
