Evaluate the period of military reform unfolded in Peru between 1968 and 1975 is somewhat more complex and precise than just "characterize" the regime, as has been proposed by most of his critics on the left. This is not just about identifying the logical articulation of the social project bearing the Velasco government, beyond the laws or ideological discourse. This task includes additional necessarily hard work at the empirical level of analysis of results of observation of behavior and dynamic relationships. In short, we must move from contemplation of rigid models to follow a living social process, full of contradictions that manifest class interests, ideological projects and institutional behaviors relatively fluid. In this paper about what happened with the peasant organization in the context of a radical agrarian reform as implemented by the military reform, we have considered both the analysis of secondary legal model and the important game of the internal struggle of tendencies within the power.
