In this book, Donald Hodges offers the first comprehensive treatment of the intellectual foundations, history, politics, and strategy of Mexican anarchism since the Revolution. Hodges interviewed leading Mexican anarchists, including Monico Rodriguez Gomez, and gained access to documents of numerous guerrilla organizations, such as the previously missing Plan de Cerro Prieto. Using both original and published sources, he shows how the political heirs of Ricardo Flores Magon, Mexicos foremost anarchist, agitated for workers self-management and agrarian reform under the cover of the Mexican Communist party, how they played an important role in the student rebellion, and how, in the face of a labor movement that has come under government control, anarchism is currently experiencing a rebirth under another name.
