Read full description of the books:



"Zapata and the Mexican Revolution" is John Womack's Harvard doctoral dissertation and a stunning example of the high standards of this great university. While the style is always very good and at times dazzling, the book is not easy to read. Womack writes with care and deliberation understanding that every line will be scrutinized very carefully by a stellar panel of academic examiners.
In this book Womack tells the story of how Emiliano Zapata led the Campesinos of the state of Morelos during the Mexican Revolution in their struggle to win back the lands that the owners of the Haciendas had taken from them during the Presidency of Porfirio Díaz (1884-1911). In order to establish the background for Zapata's actions, Womack very carefully describes how the Campesinos of Morelos were dispossessed. However, he provides no additional information on Mexican history and only describes the events of the Mexican Revolution that directly affected Morelos. His intended readers being university professors simply did not require background information of this nature.
Womack is an unabashed admirer of Zapata who, in his view, corrected very serious injustices that had been committed against the rural population of Morelos. Womack portrays Zapata as a great organiser, a superb military commander and a very just ruler. As important as anything else, Zapata demonstrated remarkable judgement. Other military leaders notably Pancho Villa tried to get Zapata involved in their schemes to topple the federal government. Zapata however always maintained his independence and used the resources of his movement only to further the cause of the Morelos.
I can find no blemishes in this masterpiece of historical writing. Presumably no one on the dissertation committee could either as Womack was awarded a professorship at Harvard shortly after its defense.
