The Caste War of Yucatan

Revised edition is based on further research in the archives and in the field and draws on the research by a new generation of scholars who have labored since the book's original publication 36 years ago One of the most significant results of this research is that it has put a human face on much that had heretofore been treated as semi mythical Reviews of the First EditionReed has not only written a fine account of the caste war he has also given us the first penetrating analysis of the social and economic systems of Yucatán in the nineteenth and twentieth centurie. BOOKS ABOUT YUCAT N I so admire this book especially this second revised edition I identify strongly with the author Nelson Reed who is not an academic but a man who found a subject that fascinated him and he chased it all over the Yucat n Peninsula At the time he wrote this relatively little had been published about the Guerra de las Castas War of the Castes the indigenous rebellion that lasted for than 50 years The Maya from 1847 to 1905 controlled much of the peninsula including the region that today is the world s playground the so called Maya Riviera of Cancun Playa del Carmen and Tulum Reed explains how they did it and why Mexico allowed it All other scholars of Yucat n s history have built upon Reed s research which is exceptional For students of Mexico or the Yucat n Peninsula this book is a must

This is the classic account of one of the most dramatic episodes in Mexican history the revolt of the Maya Indians of Yucatán against their white and mestizo oppressors that began in 1847 Within a year the Maya rebels had almost succeeded in driving their oppressors from the peninsula; by 1855 when the major battles ended the war had killed or put to flight almost half of the population of Yucatán A new religion built around a Speaking Cross supported their independence for over fifty years and that religion survived the eventual Maya defeat and continues todayThis. I m sort of in between really liking and not liking this It starts out super interesting it s a history written by an archeologist so he goes into some detail around the layers of soil and their farming practices There s a lot of discussion around the farming and religious practices i loved his archeological style and pulling back the layers on history But then it launches into a few chapters of boring military history I don t like battle stuff it s so boring You can almost skip the middle because the end especially the post script written in 1959 is really great
