Always a rebel : Ricardo Flores Magón and the Mexican Revolution by Ward S Albro( )

7 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in English and held by 1,678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Often described as the primary mover behind the Mexican Revolution, Ricardo Flores Magon was a liberal journalist working in Mexico in 1900. By 1910 and the Revolution, he was a radical anarchist in exile in the United States. Always a Rebel studies Magon's transformation during those crucial ten years, placing his changing ideas in the context of the liberal movement in Mexico, government suppression, the development of the Partido Liberal Mexicano in the United States, and thwarted attempts at revolution in 1906 and 1908. The first work to concentrate on Flores Magon himself, Always a Rebel makes clear the journalist's significance in Mexican history and explains modern Mexico's growing appreciation for him
To die on your feet : the life, times, and writings of Práxedis G. Guerrero by Ward S Albro( )

7 editions published between 1996 and 1999 in English and held by 1,555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To Die on Your Feet examines Guerrero's involvement in a broad anarchist movement - led in part by Ricardo Flores Magon - that helped to provoke the Mexican Revolution against the government of Porfirio Diaz. Self-schooled in the bucolic teachings of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Pierre-Joseph Proudhon and William Godwin, as well as the more activist theories of Mikhail Bakunin and Pyotr Kropotkin, Guerrero combined thinking and doing. Though raised as the son of a wealthy hacendado, he was a champion of the downtrodden. Guerrero despised greed, ignorance and despotism and used his pen as his primary weapon against such oppressions, writing incendiary essays for three liberal newspapers, Revolucion, Regeneracion and Punto Rojo in which he promoted socialist and anarchist ideals. People on both sides of the Mexico-United States border took note
