Editorial Reviews

Review

“Launched from South Texas in 1891, a rebellion against Mexican dictator Porfirio Díaz spread quickly to both sides of the permeable U.S.-Mexico border. In this smart transnational study, Elliott Young locates the wellsprings of this nearly forgotten episode in the life of its remarkable leader, journalist Catarino Garza, and in the social, racial, and political inequities that characterized borderlands society.”—David J. Weber, Director of the Clements Center for Southwest Studies at Southern Methodist University


“This is an original, provocative, and far-reaching book that breaks with the existing conceptualization of fields of study and national historiographical traditions. It not only makes a case for the importance of the Garza revolt itself but also uses the rebellion to reflect upon broad themes, including those of U.S.-Mexican relations; comparative colonialisms; the formation of borders; Latin American liberalism; and race, gender, and class. ”—William French, author of A Peaceful and Working People: Manners, Morals, and Class Formation in Northern Mexico

An excellent history and an impressive job of historical excavation. Young tells the full and true story of Catarino Garza and his Revolution and in the process unveils both the seriousness of the rebellion and the intertwined nature of the border culture along the Rio Grande. Garza had the support of the community on both sides of the border—financial support, political support, and military support. The Garza Revolution was far more significant than is usually perceived and was, in fact, a dress rehearsal for the 1910 Revolution.
But the Garza Rebellion is also a romantic story about a man who saw tyranny and injustice and felt he had to do something about it. Faced with the corruption of the Diaz dictatorship in Mexico, and the oppression of Mexicans in Texas, he first journalistically combated the system, which had little effect, and then, he took up the rifle. He failed, but within twenty years, another revolution in Mexico began that had more startling results.
Garza had extensive support--Anglos, Hispanics, rich, poor, on both sides of the border. He spoke for a lot of the border population. The Rebellion was only repressed by the terrorism of the U.S. Army, in the form of his nemesis, Captain Bourke, who is featured prominently in the book.
Romance, war, an evil opponent. What is not to like?
Hollywood. Are you listening?

This casts a little known light on a portion of US-Mexican Border relations often lost to history being subsumed in the ongoing anti-Porfirian revolutions of the late 19th/early 20th centuries. It explores the race relationships from both Anglo and Hispanic perspectives in a non-partisan manner.
