In “Zapata and the Mexican Revolution”, John Womack, Jr., provides an incredibly detailed history of the activities of Emiliano Zapata (1879-1919) during the Mexican Revolution (1910-20).
As someone that is not that familiar with either Zapata or the Mexican Revolution, I found this book a bit overwhelming! There is so much information that it was a real challenge for me to keep track of the names, dates, and places being discussed. The book has definitely inspired me to want to read more about Zapata and the Zapatistas.
I know, I know — this review is terrible! But I feel like I need to read more about Zapata and the Mexican Revolution before I can write more in depth about this subject 😦
