by Dan La Botz

Description: Placing this book in the context of NAFTA and Mexican movements for social change, journalist and historian Dan La Botz unveils the forces behind Marcos and the Zapatista Rebellion of January 1994 and re-examines the circumstances surrounding the assassination of presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio. Contains a detailed analysis of how Ernesto Zedillo and the PRI won the August 21, 1994 elections and includes an examination of widespread electoral fraud. La Botz provides a first-hand account of the founding of National Democratic Convention (CND), the new force for democracy and social justice in Mexico led by Rosario Ibarra. Ibarra is Mexico's leading human rights activist and first woman presidential candidate.

Review(s): "Dan La Botz gives texture to the complex web of Mexican civil society-from armed Zapatista rebels to neighborhood committees to the independent labor movement. This book provides the essential background for understanding the fascinating array of players whose combined efforts will transform Mexico into a more just and democratic society." - Medea Benjamin, Global Exchange

"La Botz provides and important addition to the growing literature about the role of popular movements in Mexico fast paced, journalistic style convincingly argues his work provides the necessary balance of information to substantiate, his point." - JOW
