An interdisciplinary analysis of the process of frontier change in one region of the Brazilian Amazon, the southern portion of the state of Para. The authors show how deforestation, settlement patterns, and the intensity of rural violence were outcomes of the competition for resources among social groups such as ranchers, peasants, loggers, Indians, goldminers, rubber farmers, bureaucrats, and investors, all of whom were capable of mobilizing varying degrees of power.
