Abstract:     
Land reform is widely discussed today. Both the underdeveloped countries and the more advanced nations which bid to aid them in their progress have generally recognized that most programs for improving the standard of living in underdeveloped nations ought to include some means of increasing the food supply and improving the plight of agricultural workers, who often compose a majority of the population in such countries. This article considers the land reform bill passed by the Peruvian legislature in May, 1964, as a means of increasing food production and improving the living conditions of the Peruvian agricultural laborers. It establishes the context for evaluating this bill. Then it analyzes the bill and concludes that the law is an attempt at a comprehensive solution to a comprehensive problem. Very possibly it is the best legislation that could have been enacted under the circumstances. It is possibly the most progressive agrarian reform bill presently on the statute books of any Latin American country, but it is also the responsibility of Peru's agrarian planners, bolstered by the experience of United States technology and aid, to carry out the painful process by continuing, more intense efforts.
