Abstract:

"The Mexican Revolution was the first great popular upheaval of the twentieth century, beginning modestly as an attempt to reform an oligarchic state, but building into a complex and violent struggle. Adolfo Gilly has written the definitive study of a critical stage in Mexico's history, spanning the years between the first peasant uprising against the dictatorship of Porfirio Diaz and Alvaro Obregon's inauguration as president in 1920, the event that marked the end of the revolution." "Gilly shows that behind well-known revolutionary heroes like Emiliano Zapata and Francisco "Pancho" Villa were lesser-known rural leaders and peasant soldiers fighting against the village pacifications, land enclosures, and forced labor that accompanied the expansion of the hacienda system and the industrialization of the Mexican countryside. Now available in a comprehensively revised and updated edition, Gilly's is the classic account of the first revolution of the twentieth century, one which set the stage for a century of socialist revolt."--Jacket.
