Doctor Odile Hoffman, Launches “Property and Territory”

Understanding land tenure in Belize may perhaps require a trip into our colonial past. It’s a complex history but one which was explored by Doctor Odile Hoffman, who penned the book “Property and Territory”. It looks at the origins of the colonial order in Belize spanning the 19th and 20th centuries. It’s a publication that talks about everything from discriminatory land regulation to Maya land tenure in southern Belize. Love News spoke to Doctor Hoffmann today at the Mexican Institute in Belize City about the work.

The book perhaps is a history guide of land ownership but also a reminder of how issues of land tenure are handled. Dr. Hoffman says that at the end of the day, the will of the people should prevail.

The book, published by Cubola Productions as part of its Belize Collection, is available for thirty-five dollars.
