ESCOBAR OHMSTEDE, Antonio. Changes in the Hydro-agrarian Landscape: Was the Revolution a Detonator?: The Case of San Luis Potosí (1910-1940). Relac. Estud. hist. soc. [online]. 2013, vol.34, n.136, pp.265-315. ISSN 2448-7554.

This article analyzes the factors that led to the restructuring of the agrarian and hydric landscape in the rioverdenses valleys of the state of San Luis Potosí during the transition from the 19th to the 20th century. It seeks to ascertain how certain external factors disrupted the irrigation systems constructed by private landowners since the colonial period, as land and water came to form part of the ejidos constituted through the implementation of Agrarian Reform in the 20th century.

Keywords : irrigation systems; towns; haciendas; legislation; water committees.
