Water in the Hispanic Southwest: A Social and Legal History, 1550-1850

כריכה קדמית
University of Arizona Press, 1996 - 209 עמודים
When Spanish conquistadores marched north from Mexico's interior, they encountered one harsh reality that eclipsed all others: the importance of water in an arid land. Covering a time when legal precedents were being set for many water rights laws, this study contributes much to an understanding of the modern Southwest, especially disputes involving Indian water rights. The paperback edition includes a new afterword by the author which discusses the results of recent research.
