Synopsis

Synopsis

Zapata and the Mexican Revolution
John Womack, Jr.

". . . It is certainly the definitive study of Emiliano Zapata, and it places him in his proper context."
—Frank Jellinek, The New York Times Book Review

"A feat of historical writing . . . Womack has an uncanny feeling for the infinitely complex strains of Mexico as a civilization.... Because he understands that historical progression is inseparable from cultural roots, he understands Zapatismo as the history, not of exotic 'peasants,' but of . . . people from the fields who did not, in the larger sense of the term, feel culturally deprived but, rather, were conscious that a social and political opportunity was given them to realize, in actuality, the latent promises of their local culture."
—Carlos Fuentes, The New York Review of Books

"The best piece of narrative history that has been written about modern Latin America in any language. In addition, it conveys an understanding of peasant revolutions that will be of great value to students of other areas beside Latin America."
—Ernest R. May
