A new edition of this biography of Zapata, and the Mexican revolution he embodied. Now improved with dozens of photographs and a new introduction, this remains one of the few works on the topic. A vital, illuminating, and fascinating work.
Zapata was a leading figure of the Mexican Revolution of 1910. He fought for local communities against landlords, treacherous politicians and exploitative businesses. Under the slogan “land and liberty” he became the purest embodiment of Mexico’s revolution.
