Properties of Violence: Law and Land Grant Struggle in Northern New Mexico
Mon. 5/27 7p: Scholar David Correa joins us live in-studio to discuss his recently published book entitled Properties of Violence: Law and Land Grant Struggle in Northern New Mexico. Through a compelling story about the conflict over the Tierra Amarilla land grant in northern New Mexico, Correia examines how law and property are constituted through violence and social struggle. The narrative also includes a surprising and remarkable cast of characters: millionaire sheep barons, Spanish anarchists, hooded Klansmen, Puerto Rican terrorists, and undercover FBI agents. Properties of Violence is a University of Georgia Press book, printed as part of the series entitled "Geographies of Justice and Social Transformation."
