Along with Emiliano Zapata, Ricardo Flores Magon (b. 1874) is regarded as one of the most important figures of the Mexican revolution. Through his newspaper Regeneraci n, he boldly criticized the injustices of the country's military dictatorship and worked to build the popular movement that eventually overthrew it. Exiled to the United States, Flores Mag n continued to agitate for revolution in Mexico. Transcending nationalism, he also dreamed of a world free from all forms of injustice. Both the US and Mexican governments responded with harsh repression. Leavenworth Penitentiary ultimately murdered him in 1922.
This volume collects the first English translations of Flores Magon's most important writings. A lengthy historical overview, chronology, maps, images, and bibliography provide context for his work.
Mitchell Verter and Chaz Bufe have given us a great gift with this fascinating volume on Ricardo Flores Magon. He was a revolutionary from a very different time from our own, but today's activists will make an immediate and intense connection with his passion for social justice. This is a gift that will only grow as you pass it on to others --Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickel and Dimed and Bait and Switch
The life, words, and ideas of Ricardo Flores Magon are as important today as they were around 100 years ago. Bravo for this wonderful book that won't let us forget those days and those heroes. Today, as always, remembering is revolutionary--Luis Rodriguez, author of Always Running and My Name is Hunger
