Agrarian Reform in the Pampa

  • R. F. Watters

Abstract

The Pampa de Anta was in the national spotlight as one of the first Sierra regions to experience the effects of the sweeping new agrarian reform. This area of a dangerously volatile peasantry became something of a showcase. Even in the 1960s part of the infrastructure for agrarian reform had been laid in the Pampa: an aerial photo and a cadastral survey had been completed and a socio-economic survey carried out. In August 1968, two months before the military junta headed by General Velasco swept Belaúnde from power and initiated the Peruvian Revolution, a group of engineers and topographers from Lima travelled to the Pampa de Anta.
