Revolution or Return to Status Quo?
This book is very well researched and offers a new perspective on the Mexican Revolution. Many Mexicans 100 years after the bloody Civil War are struggling with the question of whether the Revolution fundamentally changed life in Mexico. Dr. Buchenau says, it depends. In a detailed analysis not only of Obregon but also his fellow Sonorans the question of which direction they took the revolution looms large. Obregon became a strongman, a caudillo in the tradition of Santa Anna 100 years before. The book is a great read and the conclusion I leave up to the reader to enjoy.
