Abstract:A summary of the A.'s dissertation (Lund): 'Structure foncière; organisation et structure sociale'. The aim of this study is to elucidate as far as possible the different economic systems, social structures and organization of three Libyan oases. These communities differ greatly from each other: Ghadamès is a completely closed oasis, Mourzouk is a scattered oasis, with widely spread cultivated areas, whereas Ghat has an intermediate position with both compact and widely spread gardening areas. This is primarily a result of the different systems of irrigation.
