    France

    Over more than ten years, France has experienced a twofold increase of residential housing prices. This was largely fuelled by the credit conditions and a general fear of the future. A strong negative correlation between initial price level and its increase leads to a massive trend of spatial homogenization of the prices. Such a tendency is fairly vigorous in the metropolitan area of Marseille, and particularly in its extremely poor and long devaluated centre, where prices have risen by over 200% since the mid-1990s.

    El trabajo hace una revisión historiográfica que problematiza la hipótesis de que la desamortización despojó de sus tierras o pauperizó a los pueblos de indios en México. Ello permite hilar otros cuestionamientos sobre actores políticos, sociales e institucionales, que no han recibido mucha atención de los historiadores respecto de los efectos de la Ley de 1856, como los ayuntamientos, los abogados y tinterillos.
