Overview

This collection on the Zapatista uprising brings together contributors from Mexico, the United States and Britain. The editors examine the formation of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN) and discuss the key themes of the uprising - from the central issue of what it means to have a revolution that does not aim to take power to the meaning of identity and non-identity, the question of gender, race and class and the role of the Internet and electronic media. The significant contribution that the EZLN's spokesman, Subcomandante Marcos, has made to revolutionary literature is a theme that runs throughout the book.
