Tornel and Santa Anna the writer and the caudillo, Mexico, 1795-1853 by Will Fowler ( )
24 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Makes persuasive case that José María Tornel y Mendívil, spin-doctor for Antonio López de Santa Anna, was an important figure in his own right, both as a politician and a writer. Emphasizes the 'great man' school of history, but forces the reader to conclude that the first political generation of independent Mexico boasted a substantial crew of extraordinary personalities"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58
Santa Anna of Mexico by Will Fowler ( Book )
13 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 1,656 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Antonio López de Santa Anna (1794-1876) is one of the most famous, and infamous, figures in Mexican history. Six times the country's president, he is consistently depicted as a traitor, a turncoat, and a tyrant--the exclusive cause of all of Mexico's misfortunes following the country's independence from Spain. He is also, as this biography makes clear, grossly misrepresented. Will Fowler provides a revised picture of Santa Anna's life, offering new insights into his activities in his bailiwick of Veracruz and in his numerous military engagements. The Santa Anna who emerges from this book is an intelligent, dynamic, yet reluctant leader, ingeniously deceptive at times, courageous and patriotic at others. His extraordinary story is that of a middle-class provincial criollo, a high-ranking officer, an arbitrator, a dedicated landowner, and a political leader who tried to prosper personally and help his country develop at a time of severe and repeated crises, as the colony that was New Spain gave way to a young, troubled, besieged, and beleaguered Mexican nation.--Publisher description
Mexico in the age of proposals, 1821-1853 by Will Fowler ( )
10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,339 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Political violence and the construction of national identity in Latin America ( )
9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This highly topical volume seeks to analyze the intimate but under-studied relationship between the construction of national identity in Latin America and the violent struggle for political power that has defined Latin American history since independence. The theoretical framework is complemented by a series of tightly structured and fascinating case studies, written by an international team of specialists and spanning a range of Latin American countries. The result is an original and fascinating contribution to an increasingly important field of study

Malcontents, rebels, and pronunciados the politics of insurrection in nineteenth-century Mexico ( )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Behind every pronunciamiento, a formal list of grievances designed to spark political change in nineteenth-century Mexico, was a disgruntled individual, rebel, or pronunciado. Initially a role undertaken by soldiers, a pronunciado rallied military communities to petition for local, regional, and even national interests. As the popularity of these petitions grew, however, they evolved from a military-led practice to one endorsed and engaged by civilians, priests, indigenous communities, and politicians. The second in a series of books exploring the phenomenon of the pronunciamiento, this volume examines case studies of individual and collective pronunciados in regions across Mexico. Top scholars examine the motivations of individual pronunciados and the reasons they succeeded or failed; why garrisons, town councils, and communities adopted the pronunciamiento as a political tool and form of representation and used it to address local and national grievances; and whether institutions upheld corporate aims in endorsing, supporting, or launching pronunciamientos. The essays provide a better understanding of the rebel leaders behind these public acts of defiance and reveal how an insurrectionary repertoire became part of a national political culture

Forceful negotiations : the origins of the pronunciamiento in nineteenth-century Mexico by Will Fowler ( Book )
7 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Often translated as "revolt," a pronunciamiento was a formal, written protest, typically drafted as a list of grievances or demands, that could result in an armed rebellion. This common nineteenth-century Hispano-Mexican extraconstitutional practice was used by soldiers and civilians to forcefully lobby, negotiate, or petition for political change. Although the majority of these petitions failed to achieve their aims, many leading political changes in nineteenth-century Mexico were caused or provoked by one of the more than fifteen hundred pronunciamientos filed between 1821 and 1876
