Special issue devoted to publication of the First Agrarian Reform Law of Cuba (Ley de reforma agraria) signed into law on May 17, 1959. It confiscated all properties over 420 hectares and re-distributed them. Prior to the enactment of this law nearly 80% of Cuban land was owned by foreign, primarily American, companies. In many quarters, domestic and foreign, the law was quite unpopular, though supported by the peasantry.
