The underdogs, a novel of the Mexican Revolution by Mariano Azuela( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hailed as the greatest novel of the Mexican Revolution, The Underdogs recounts the story of an illiterate but charismatic Indian peasant farmerrsquo;s part in the rebellion against Porfirio Diacute;az, and his subsequent loss of belief in the cause when the revolutionary alliance becomes factionalized. Azuelarsquo;s masterpiece is a timeless, authentic portrayal of peasant life, revolutionary zeal, and political disillusionment. First published in 1915, this book is Azuela's classic account of the Mexican Revolution. Demetrio Macias, a naive, peace-loving Indian, becomes swept up in a revolution against the dictator Portfirio Diaz, and his courage eventually leads to a generalship in Pancho Villa's guerilla army. This is a timeless, authentic portrayal of peasant life and revolutionary zeal
