The Ideology of a Peasant Revolutionary
Robert P. Millon dug deeply into the source materials in Mexico when he wrote this concise but illuminating book about the broader meaning of the movement led by Emiliano Zapata. Zapata‘s cry for land reform and a democratic transformation of the existing order of his time is heard anew from today’s Zapatistas. Millon also discusses the conflicting interpretations of the Zapata movement, and has supplied a brief Afterword for this edition.
Millon has taught in the history departments of Louisiana State University and at Oregon State. In the mid-1970s he helped organize the Vicente Lombardo Toledano papers into an archive at the Universidad Obrera de Mexico, Mexico, D.F.
