The description for this book, From Insurrection to Revolution in Mexico: Social Bases of Agrarian Violence, 1750-1940, will be forthcoming.
"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
