By Pratap Chatterjee on July 10, 2010
Format: Paperback
Get it! The only book you need to read to learn about the Zapatismo unless you can get into a time machine and go back to Chiapas on New Year's day 1994. Written by an amazing activist who spent ten years writing the definitive Community Guide to Environmental Health (and translated Wind in the Blood, THE book on Mayan and Chinese medicine) this combination of poetics and symbolism has the power to change the way revolutionaries think!

Format: Paperback
I just stayed up WAY past my bedtime to finish A Poetics of Resistance. Jeff Conant's beautiful, incisive, important book won't just teach you everything you always wanted to know about the Zapatistas: Are they rural farmers? Urban intellectuals? And what's with the masks*?

A Poetics of Resistance also reminds you of the high stakes game being played with our lives. Giant corporations - and the governments they own - are exploiting both people and the environment, in Mexico and around the world. The Zapatistas aren't a quaint group of indigenous people fighting for their land. They're a broad-based social movement offering an alternative way of life, one that's not just sustainable, but exciting and brilliant. Let's hope they win.

*A: It's really cold in the mountains!
