The Mexican Explosion/ Chapter 7
“Like our popular fiestas, the Revolution was an excess and a squandering, a going to extremes, an explosion of joy and hopelessness a shout of orphanhood and jubilation, of suicide and life, all of them mingled together” (Octavio Perez)
“…in that explosion, much was unclear: Who won? Who lost? What were the goals, and were they achieved? And were the results worth the loss of more than one million lives?”(Burns and Charlip, 2007:179).
