Aviña publishes revolutionary book
Last month, Oxford University Press released Prof. Alex Aviña's book Specters of Revolution: Peasant Guerrillas in the Cold War Mexican Countryside. "Specters of Revolution offers a penetrating account of guerrilla struggles in modern Mexico. Alexander Aviña captures how peasant longings, political repression, and the violence of poverty created a daring movement for justice. The state's response-a dirty war-evokes the darkest moments of Latin America's military regimes. At times hopeful, at times tragic, Aviña provides a profoundly moving Cold War drama." --Tanalís Padilla. Get it at your local bookstore, or online. Congratulations Alex!
