JOHN WOMACK JR.
At the end of the Porfiriato a movement took place, which raised an interest throughout the entire world, the Mexican Revolution. A turning point for the conflicts that would later go through Latin America, this event quickly turned into one of the most passionate moments in the history of Mexico. This book with a deep analysis-that gives account of the perdurable character that has made Zapata and the Mexican Revolution in a classic to study the revolution-, makes John Womack offer a brilliant story about one of the most representative people of the Revolution, Emiliano Zapata. He was the leader of the "Revolution of the South," his figure, accompanied by the countryside people, quickly evoke in the collective and historic mind of the Mexican nation, the symbol of fight and resistance.
