Book Description

November 1986
"Although From Insurrection to Revolution in Mexico pursues a variety of engaging issues, it is firmly organized around a central question: Why did Father Miguel Hidalgo's massive peasant uprising of 1810 fail to transform colonial society and why, by contrast, did the several agrarian movements of 1910 contribute fundamentally to a social revolution? . . . Its ambitious scope, original research, convincing contrasts, and direct encounter of theory and primary evidence are qualities that place this book among the best recent contributions to historical sociology."--John Walton, American Journal of Sociology

4.0 out of 5 stars Rural Revolts and Their Leaders In Mexico April 4 2000
Format:Paperback
In depth coverage of rural revolts and the grievances which led to them. Includes tables (in appendices) which show population distribution and numbers of haciendas versus ranchos in 1877 and 1910. Good information on the motivation of key personages such as Zapata, Villa, Carranza, Madero, Calles, and Obregon. Definitely for the person who is a student of the history of the Americas or peasant uprisings leading to revolution.
