Jose Guadalupe Posada (1851-1913), one of Mexico's most important graphic artists, influenced the generation who lived through and pictured the Mexican Revolution. His powerful and visually arresting newspaper illustrations and woodcut broadsides, whose subjects range from news to religion, from corridos (escapades of bandits and heroes) to calveras (skeletal figures associated with the Day of the Dead), reflect indigenous folk-art traditions. In these graphically powerful penny handbills, Posada responded to the political and social issues of his day, addressed cultural ills, and spread moral ideas. Focusing on the Art Institute of Chicago's impressive and previously unpublished collection of prints by Posada, this handsome book examines his work and places it in the larger context of Mexican printmaking in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. With beautiful reproductions of Posada's forceful and lively prints, as well as fascinating technical analyses of these works, the book is essential to anyone interested in the graphic arts of Latin America.

This remarkable documentary examines the profound and enduring legacy of Emiliano Zapata in contemporary Mexico. The film focuses on Emeterio Pantaleon, a 97-year-old Mexican farmer and one of the last living veterans who fought with Zapata during the Mexican Revolution of 1910 to 1920. Emeterio remembers the Revolution's call for tierra y libertad as he struggles on his corn field in Morelos. Recent legislation to privatize traditional community lands is destroying the communal farming system that Zapata promoted and fought for, and all over Mexico campesinos are being forced to sell their lands. But Emeterio will not surrender his ideals, stubbornly riding out to tend his fields even as his own sons emigrate to the U.S. And Emeterio is not alone in his struggle, for a new generation of Zapatistas in Chiapas is also fighting to regain communal lands and in so doing is bringing renewed hope to Emeterio and millions of other beleaguered Mexican farmers. This dramatic and poetic film is a tribute to Mexico's campesinos. It portrays their ongoing struggle for the land while also relating the now-legendary story of the folk hero Zapata. Near-mystical beliefs about Zapata are recounted in interviews with farmers, still-living Zapata family members, and members of the Mexican government who actively try to co-opt his myth and legend. Highlighted by rare archival footage of Zapata and the Mexican Revolution, 'The Last Zapatista'� demonstrates that the heritage and ideals of zapatismo will drive Mexico's agrarian struggle long into the future. 'The Last Zapatista'� is essential viewing for any course in Mexican history or culture, Latin American studies, cultural anthropology, or development issues. It was produced by Susan Lloyd.

The Cristero movement is an essential part of the Mexican Revolution. When in 1926 relations between Church and state, old enemies and old partners, eventually broke down, when the churches closed and the liturgy was suspended, Rome, Washington and Mexico, without ever losing their heads, embarked upon a long game of chess. These years were crucial, because they saw the setting up of the contemporary political system. The state established its omnipotence, supported by a bureaucratic apparatus and a strong privileged class. Just at the moment when the state thought that it was finally supreme, at the moment at which it decided to take control of the Church, the Cristero movement arose, a spontaneous mass movement, particularly of peasants, unique in its spread, its duration, and its popular character. For obvious reasons, the existing literature has both denied its reality and slandered it. (source: Nielsen Book Data) 9780521210317 20190128
