The book description is currently unavailable.
"Although From Insurrection to Revolution in Mexico pursues a variety of engaging issues, it is firmly organized around a central question: Why did Father Miguel Hidalgo's massive peasant uprising of 1810 fail to transform colonial society and why, by contrast, did the several agrarian movements of 1910 contribute fundamentally to a social revolution? . . . Its ambitious scope, original research, convincing contrasts, and direct encounter of theory and primary evidence are qualities that place this book among the best recent contributions to historical sociology."--John Walton, American Journal of Sociology
