    Desde 1988 el sector ejidatario mexicano se ha visto afectado
    por una serie de cambios de política y perturbaciones exógenas
    que han puesto en tela de juicio la viabilidad agrícola del
    sector en su conjunto. Los cambios --liberalización del comercio,
    privatización, reducción de los subsidios, eliminación
    de los controles de precios, perturbaciones macroeconómicas,
    devaluación y grandes reformas del marco legal que rige el
    uso de la tierra en los ejidos-- han llevado a un reordenamiento

    Since 1988 the ejido sector in Mexico has been buffeted by a series of policy changes and exogenous shocks that have brought into question the agricultural viability of the sector as a whole. These changes -trade liberalization, privatization, falling subsidies, the abolition of price controls, macroeconomic shocks, devaluation and momentous changes in the legal framework governing land use in the ejido- have led to a radical reordering of the policy framework and incentive structure under which the farmers of these communal lands operate.

    Identifying the appropriate germplasm to be improved is a key component of any participatory breeding effort because of its implications for impacts on social welfare and genetic diversity. This paper describes a method developed to select a subset of 17 populations for a participatory breeding project from a set of 152 maize landraces. The larger set of landraces was collected in order to characterize, for conservation purposes, the maize diversity present in the Central Valleys of Oaxaca, Mexico.

    This article emphasises that society makes property and that when one society is displaced by another it often is the case that existing property arrangements are recast to favor the newcomers and disadvantage the former inhabitants. With this in mind, the paper explores the displacement process by examining the case of Hispanos in northern New Mexico and their displacement with the takeover of the U.S. government beginning in 1846.The paper finds that:a major disruption in the political economy of northern New Mexico occurred under U.S. governance.

    El estudio de la propiedad y la tenencia de la tierra en México, es uno de los temas que mayor interés ha despertado entre los historiadores de distintas generaciones. La desigualdad en el acceso a la tierra y el despojo del que fueron víctimas los más débiles, ha sido punto de partida de varios trabajos fundacionales en la historiografía mexicana. Un tema íntimamente relacionado con los problemas agrarios y la propiedad es la desamortización. Esta es considerada como uno de los detonantes principales de los conflictos del campo porfiriano que desembocaron en la revolución de 1910.

    The insufficient supply of serviced land at affordable prices for
    the urban poor and the need for regularization of the consequent
    illegal occupations in urban areas are two of the most
    important issues on the Latin American land policy agenda.
    Taking a structural/integrated view on the functioning
    of the urban land market in Latin America, this paper discusses
    the nexus between the formal and the informal land markets. It
    thus exposes the perverse feedback effects that curative regularization

    El proceso de reconversión industrial que se desarrolla en México manifiesta un impacto diferencial, al incorporar sólo ciertos territorios y determinados sectores económicos a la "nueva lógica de producción global". Esto hace que los patrones territoriales, imperantes hasta los años setenta, se vean modificados. El estudio parte del análisis de la industria manufacturera y reconoce a las empresas de gran tamaño como las de mayor capacidad para asumir dicha reestructuración.

    From a river-basin perspective, wastewater irrigation is an important form of water and nutrient reuse; however, there are important water quality, environmental, and public health considerations. This report explores the advantages and risks of urban wastewater reuse for crop production in the water-short Guanajuato river-basin in west-central Mexico, and then by a selective literature review demonstrates how common this practice is worldwide.
