About This Item

New York: Harper Torchbooks. 1973. Trade Paperback. Very Good. Tanned. Original bookseller's price stamp to first page, otherwise unmarked. Spine creased, but square and tight. Light edgewear to covers. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. 328 pages.

A good short course in the major popular revolutions of the 20th century--in Russia, Mexico, China, Algeria, Cuba, and Viet Nam--not from the perspective of governments or parties or leaders, but from the perspective of the peasant peoples whose lives and ways of living were destroyed by the depredations of the imperial powers.

Synopsis

Written in 1969 by Eric Wolf, Peasant Wars of the Twentieth Century, is a comparative view of the peasant revolutions of Mexico, Russia, China, Vietnam, Algeria, and Cuba.
