ALMAZAN REYES, Marco Aurelio. Modernización y naturaleza. Auge y declive de la hacienda cañera y de fincas cafetaleras en el distrito de Teotitlán del Camino, Oaxaca, 1888-1917. Mundo agrar. [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.44, pp.114.e1-114.e2. ISSN 1515-5994.

The studies of liberal land and water policies of the 19th century in Mexico have primarily considered socio-political and economic factors to explain their repercussions in regional areas. The purpose of this article is to add the observation of the influence of nature on the results of such policies, particularly in the district of Teotitlán del Camino, Oaxaca. By identifying what happened in its two socionatural spaces, made up of distinctive characteristics, it will be illustrated that nature enabled to promote private cane and coffee projects, but also constituted a main actor in their subsequent decline.

Keywords : Desamortizacion; Modernization; Liberal reforms; Federalization of water; Nature; México.
