Abstract: "This is the first time that an in depth analysis of property rights to land has been made in the Brazilian Amazon or that a comparison has been made with the historical U.S. experience. The paper outlines U.S. land policies and their impact on property rights. Land use and harvest practices are described for the U.S. South and the Great Lakes States as frontier conditions changed. These patterns are compared with tenure practices, settlement conditions, and land use practices in the Brazilian Amazon."
