Empire and Revolution


University of California Press

This chapter examines the revolution in Mexico in 1910. This revolution began as a call for a more participatory government and agrarian reform, but it quickly deepened into a broad-based cultural, political, and nationalist rejection of the political elites in the nation's capital, the great estate owners, and the foreign capitalists—for the most part, Americans. The Mexican Revolution presented the first major political challenge to American hegemony in Latin America during the modern era and the sense of anti-Americanism intensified as the fighting among the Mexicans deepened and broadened. This chapters also discusses the rise of the orozquistas, the fate of settlers and colonists, and Venustiano Carranza's revolution.

Keywords:   revolution, Mexico, participatory government, agrarian reform, foreign capitalists, American hegemony, anti-Americanism, orozquistas, Venustiano Carranza
