The Wind That Swept Mexico

ByAnita BrennerandGeorge R. Leighton
THE story of Mexico’s revolution is ably told in a combination of crisp text by Anita Brenner and one hundred eighty-four historical photographs assembled by George R. Leighton. Both point the way from the regime of Diaz — a very comfortable time for the few “ins,” but a period of oppression, poverty, and despair for the far more numerous “outs" — through the many years of chaotic fighting to the relative stability, on a new basis, of modern times. Generally sympathetic with the aims of the revolution, the author is suspicious of conservative tendencies in the Avila Camacho regime, and of the sympathy which those trends may enjoy in some American diplomatic and financial circles.
