Marcos first captured world attention on New Year's Day, 1994 when he and an indigenous guerrilla group calling themselves 'Zapatistas' revolted against the Mexican government and seized key towns in the southernmost state of Chiapas. In the eight years that have passed since their uprising, Marcos has altered the course of Mexican politics and emerged as an international symbol of grassroots movement-building, rebellion and democracy. The prolific stream of poetic political writings, tales, and traditional myths which Marcos has written during this period are collected in this remarkable work. These words now form an incendiary volume of contemporary political history. An inspirational text in which we hear the voice of a people refusing to be forgotten or silenced--the voice of Mexico in transition, the voice of a people struggling for democracy by using their word as their only weapon.--Back cover.
