Item description for The Face of Pancho Villa: A History in Photographs and Words by Friedrich Katz...
Overview Through a collection of photographs and text, discusses the most controversial leader that the Mexican Revolution produced, Francisco (Pancho) Villa.
Publishers Description The Face of Pancho Villa, coupling historian Friedrich Katz's text with 42 archival photographs, provides insight into Pancho Villa, a revolutionary who was a hero for some, a villain for others. Hero or villain, he changed the history of Mexico. Pancho Villa has never been forgotten by the people but for too long academia has belittled his achievements and importance. Yet the scholarship of Friedrich Katz has forced Pancho Villa back into historical conversations as a pivotal and complex figure in the Mexican Revolution. Villa did more during the armed phases of the Mexican Revolution to overthrow the Diaz and Huerta regimes than any other Mexican leader. Yet, unlike most of his peers, he lacked a formal education and came from the lowest rungs of Mexican society.
