Chapter 2 discusses eighteenth-century land developments in Havana. It focuses on the period immediately before and after the British assault of 1762, examining the first large-scale expansion of the extramural city and contributing to the literature on land tenure and development in Latin America. Despite the established importance of the port, land scarcity, land tenure, and population control emerge as the central concerns of the colonial administration and span the military reorganization of the late eighteenth century.
