Overview

The life of Mexican Revolutionary Emiliano Zapata was the stuff that legends are made of. Born and raised in a tiny village in the small south-central state of Morelos, he led an uprising in 1911—one strand of the larger Mexican Revolution—against the regime of long-time president Porfirio Díaz. He fought not to fulfill personal ambitions, but for the campesinos of Morelos, whose rights were being systematically ignored in Don Porfirio's courts.

Expanding haciendas had been appropriating land and water for centuries in the state, but as the twentieth century began things were becoming desperate. It was not long before Díaz fell. But Zapata then discovered that other national leaders—Francisco Madero, Victoriano Huerta, and Venustiano Carranza—would not put things right, and so he fought them too. He fought for nearly a decade until, in 1919, he was gunned down in an ambush at the hacienda Chinameca.

In this new political biography of Zapata, Brunk, noted journalist and scholar, shows us Zapata the leader as opposed to Zapata the archetypal peasant revolutionary. In previous writings on Zapata, the movement is covered and Zapata the man gets lost in the shuffle. Brunk clearly demonstrates that Zapata's choices and actions did indeed have an historical impact.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this scholarly study of Zapata, journalist and scholar Brunk emphasizes aspects of personal leadership over the revolutionary movement as a whole. Brunk portrays a man whose legendary status has helped obscure the facts. From the formative years until his death by ambush in 1919, Zapata is depicted as a man unwaveringly committed to basic land reform and social justice for the peasants of his native state of Morelos. Zapata is not, however, idealized: his inability (or refusal) to control the brutal excesses of subordinate chieftains often resulted in bad press at home and abroad, much to the detriment of his credibility. Likewise, coalitions formed with other major revolutionary leaders (notably Pancho Villa) essential to any hope of successwere always tenuous and fraught with potential treachery, given the vast array of personal and ideological elements in play. A well-documented, readable work; recommended for serious students of the topic.Charles E. Perry, East Central Univ., Ada, Okla.

    Comprehensive and analytical

    This book provides a useful and interesting analysis of Zapata the man, moving away from the great mythology that has build up around him. It tells the riveting story of the Mexican Revolution well without becoming bogged down in background and detail.
