Journalist John Ross on Revolutionary Mexico

John Ross – Revolutionary Mexico (lecture)

For many, particularly in the U.S. and Canada, it is a vacation getaway with beaches at Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Puerto Vallarta and “una cerveza mas, por favor.” Throw in a pyramid or two and that’s about it. The complex realities of the country escape most visitors. Mexico has a rich history of revolution and resistance to tyranny. But much of the news today is about gun battles and drug cartels. What are the prospects for revolutionary change?
