A book of one of the geatest heroes of the 20th century. Jul 15, 2005
This book explores the aspects of the life of Emiliano Zapata, one of my heroes and inspirations. It covers everything about the man, with plenty of pictures that give a great view into the life of the people of the Revolution and of Zapata himself. The book also talks about the alleged legend that Zapata did not die, but in fact survived the attack at Chinameca. This book vividly explains his life and that in fact Emiliano Zapata did not die, but lives on today, in the people who are still fighting for the government to return the land that was illegally taken (The Zapatistas in Chiapas are an example of those still fighting). There was a small quote under a picture of an army that said: "Why was it that they followed him?" and after completing this book, i understood why so many people respected the man enough to not question his actions and his generosity and follow him to fight against a great injustice. Honestly, this is a great book and a worthwhile read for anyone interested in the man and legacy that is Zapata.

An excelent analysis of Zapata's life and philosophy Jun 20, 2000
Enrique Krauze is well known for his series of books about the political power in Mexico since the last century to our days. In the Zapata's book, Krauze makes a very serious analysis of the life of this "caudillo" of the Mexican Revolution that nowadays is a symbol of social justice and in general: mexican socialism. Do you want to know more about the current "guerrilla" of the Liberation Army of Zapata (EZLN) in Chiapas? You need to read this book to know the true and imparcial phylosophy of Zapata, a person that shaped and still shapes the Mexican History in the last century. More than a simple biography, an excellent way to understand why the Mexicans love and will love forever their land.
