Book Excerpt: 
. . .God has pardoned him And the Virgin of Guadelupe. "Good-bye Beautiful Mexico Where our leader died Good-bye to the palace Whence he issued a living corpse "Señores, there is nothing eternal Nor anything sincere in life See what happened to Don Francisco I. Madero!'

By the time he was half-way through, the entire Tropa was humming the tune, and when he finished there was a moment of jingling silence.

"We are fighting," said Isidro Amayo, "for Libertad."

"What do you mean by Libertad?"

"Libertad is when I can do what I want!"

"But suppose it hurts somebody else?"

He shot back at me Benito Juarez' great sentence:

"Peace is the respect for the rights of others!"

I wasn't prepared for that. It startled me, this barefooted meztizo's conception of Liberty. I submit that it is the only. . . Read More

Lo confieso, estoy tan atrasada en leer libros sobre la historia de mi propio país que me encanta que este libro haya caído justo ahora en mis manos.

Ame como John Reed describe, sin juzgar y de manera sencilla y abierta todo lo que vivió mientras estuvo junto al ejercito constitucionalista y Pancho

This is non-fiction but it reads like fiction. It was so enthralling also thanks to the descriptive language of Reed. I didn't know much about the Mexican revolution of 1913-1914 and this is a good book to have some informations about it. It isn't very informative or complete, it isn't a history

This is a tough book to rate fairly on a five star scale, especially without resort to half-stars. Reed writes lyrical, detailed paeans to the land and people of northern mexico and paints vivid portraits of Pancho Villa, Venustiano Carranza, and a multitude of other people he met during his infiltr

American socialist and journalist John Reed traveled to Mexico to cover the Revolution and his reportage is a vivid eye witnesses account. He met Pancho Vila and rode with his troops. Reed covered the battles, but most important of all, he captured the people who fought the Revolution. He lived with

"México Insurgente" del escritor y periodista estadounidense John Reed, nos relata desde su perspectiva la Revolución Mexicana; anduvo por el norte del país y conoció al Gral. Pancho Villa (cuyo nombre real era José Doroteo Arango Arámbula), además de relatar con la mayor humanidad posible quiénes e

If "Homage to Catalonia" left you hungry for another blend of adventure, true war reporting, headache-inducing factionalism, romanticized socialism, and oddly-rendered Spanish translations -- boy do I have a book for you!

John Reed is the kind of writer whose life eventually became a more intriguing

Sort of an odd book. This is not really a history of the Mexican Revolution in any sense; rather it is a series of reports filed by John Reed in his capacity as a journalist attached to Pancho Villa's Division of the North in early 1914. Reading it, you will not get much of an understanding of the o

Interesting series of accounts

This edition has a lot of typographical errors which can at times make reading difficult. Overall its an interesting read, its essentially a series of diary entries so its not very useful for plotting the military campaigns of the Revolution or the wider political conte

My great great grandfather wrote this book. He was a famous war journalist. This one is about time he spent in Mexico with Pancho Villa and his gang, during the revoultion in the early 1900s. The other well-known book of his is "Ten Days that Shook the World," --about the russian revolution.He was a

I never bothered reading any of John Read due to his communist reputation, but Insurgent Mexico. (D. Appleton & Co., New York 1914) written over 100 years ago is a fascinating and engaging narrative as some of today's best literary fiction by the likes of Cormac McCarthy, Boston Teran or Philipp Mey
