    1. this book is suppppppper detailed which makes it thick and dense. there is just so much in it. this guy has been called a new john reed for a new mexican revolution but this guy writes in a more accessible, non academic style which makes it nice to read. it can be a little dry at points just because he goes into so many little details about meetings, and letters, and political figures yadda yadda. but it is filled with some interesting useless information, like how the sup makes his own home mov [...]

    2. So so good. This is the book to read if you really want to get your feet wet in the EZLN.
