Item description for La revolución mexicana: Memoria, mito e historia (La Revolución: Mexico's Great Revolution as Memory, Myth, and History) (Spanish Edition) by Thomas Benjamin...

The 1910 Revolution is still tangibly present in Mexico and its people. This path finding book shows how Mexicans from 1910 through the 1950s interpreted the revolution, tried to make sense of it, and, through memory, myth making, and history writing, invented an idea called "La Revolucin." This research clarifies how the revolution has served to authorize and legitimize politics today.

Description in Spanish:Casi cien aos despus del comienzo de la Revolucin Mexicana, este acontecimiento sigue siendo una extraa combinacin de sucesos reales, mitos renovadores e historias inventadas por los gobiernos posrevolucionarios para narrar la historia del movimiento social ms importante de Amrica Latina en el siglo XX.

De las historias y mitologas derivadas de la lucha armada nace la Tradicin Revolucionaria, que toma forma en el festival anual, el monumento conmemorativo y la historia oficial. Todas ellas representan los distintos modos de organizar la memoria colectiva para difundir el pasado, realzarlo y revivirlo en el presente. En este libro se encuentran historias hasta ahora inditas de los festivales anuales, como el que se realizaba el 20 de noviembre, que a partir de esto se eligi como Da de la Revolucin Mexicana, o la inslita construccin del Monumento a la Revolucin, que originalmente estaba destinado a ser el Palacio Legislativo. Esta aproximacin a la historia revolucionaria y al desarrollo de las "historias oficiales" de la Revolucin Mexicana llega hasta nuestros das en un momento de incertidumbre ideolgica, en el que varios grupos polticos y gobiernos intentan modificar la Tradicin Revolucionaria y con ello la esencia misma de la Revolucin.
