This book is an attempt to reflect the process of implementing an ambitious project of territorial planning in the Ucayali region for the demarcation and titling of indigenous communities.
The first section of the book, written by lawyer Pedro García Hierro, concerns the background of the project, describing the conditions of slavery to which the indigenous peoples of Ucayali were subjected.
In the second article Danish anthropologist Søren Hvalkof covers the history of the Atalya and Gran Pajonal region based on his personal experience.
Anthropologist Andrew Gray has written the third part, wherein he describes the implementation of the project. Also published in Spanish (Documento IWGIA No. 24).
