By Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz, 1980.

Roots of Resistance is a socioeconomic study of the history of northern New Mexico land tenure. Dispelling stereotypes of Mexicans and Pueblo Indian people in the region, this book provides a case study of capitalist development in a colonized area and sheds a critical light on the issue of land use and land tenure in New Mexico in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
