by Eric Perramond, associate professor of Southwest studies and environmental science

Perramond evaluates management techniques, labor expenditures, gender roles, and decision-making on private ranches of varying size in northern Mexico. By examining the economic and ecological dimensions of daily decisions made on and off the ranch, he shows that, contrary to prevailing notions, ranchers rarely collude as a class unless land titles are at issue, and that their decision-making is as varied as the landscapes they oversee.
