PAZ, Magalí Luciana  and  FLEITAS, Karina Verónica. Del líquido vital: entre la escasez y el valor de uso en la reproducción social campesina. Cruz del Eje, Córdoba (Argentina). Mundo agrar. [online]. 2019, vol.20, n.44, pp.115.e1-115.e2. ISSN 1515-5994.

In this article, we present an analysis of access to water in peasant units located on the left side of the Cruz del Eje dam. First, the work investigates the ideological and economic sustenance of the construction of this reservoir in the 1940s. It then determines the impact that disputes over access to water in the region have on the reproduction of these rural communities. Thus, from an historical-anthropological approach, and taking account different indicators, we come to the conclusion of the dam generated a particular effect on the local population and that, consequently, there are substantial differences between areas with access to water and those established as provisional irrigation.
