Joseph and Jürgen Buchenau explore the revolution's causes, dynamics, consequences, and legacies. They do so from varied perspectives, including those of campesinos and workers; politicians, artists, intellectuals, and students; women and men; the well-heeled, the dispossessed, and the multitude in the middle. In the process, they engage major questions about the revolution. How did the revolutionary process and its aftermath modernize the nation's economy and political system and transform the lives of ordinary Mexicans?

    Perfect for an undergraduate course on the history of Mexico. Also worked well for graduate seminar where students had little to no background on Latin America. Provides a broad overview and chronology of the Revolution as well as its consolidation and legacy. My only concern was the lack of attention to the original Zapatistas. Much more attention was paid to the EZLN.
