Atkin, Ronald. Revolution! 1910-1920. New York: John Day Company, 1969.

    Giving a lot of personal information about each main leader throughout the Revolution, this source gave a lot of information about their efforts in aiding the revolutionary process.  The events that took place during this time also created enough background to help understand the oppression of the people.


Braddy, Haldeen. The Paradox of Pancho Villa. El Paso: Texas Western Press, 1978.

    While rather small in size, this source gave a lot of information on the character of Pancho Villa.  Whatever discrepancies there were about his behavior, decisions, etc. was included, giving an unbiased reading on the events.


Calvert, Peter. The Mexican Revolution, 1910-1914: The Diplomacy of Anglo-American Conflict. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1968.

    This source did not provide as much information as we would have liked, partly because it focused on the international conflicts rather than the internal ones.  Some details on Huerta are provided that are not commonly seen in other pieces but this book was not a lot of help to us.


Camp, Roderic A. Mexican Political Biographies, 1884-1935. Austin: University of Texas Press, 1991.

    This book was very helpful in giving guidelines to the leaders of the various stages of the revolution.  Quick facts about their birth, education, and life as a political figure are all included as well as other factual information.  The main problem we found was that not all the information was the same as what was found in other sources.


Cumberland, Charles. Mexican Revolution: The Constitutionalist Years. Austin and London: University of Texas Press, 1972.

    The selections we took from this book are more general than the other information within since the information is more detailed and focuses more on the years following the aspects of the revolution we looked at.


Cumberland, Charles C. . Mexican Revolution:  Genesis under Madero.  Austin:  University of Texas Press, 1952. 

    This book is a detailed look at the Revolution up until Huerta's coup d'etat.  It is however, quite dated, and it is necessary to validate some of Cumberland's arguments with more recent reseach.  The overall information he provides is quite good. 


Encyclopedia of Latin American History and Culture. Barbara A. Tenenbaum, ed.  New York:  Charles Scribners’s Sons, 1996. 

    This six volume encyclopedia is an excellent overview of almost anything that has to do with Latin America. 


Encyclopedia of Mexico: History, Science, and Culture. Michael S. Werner, ed. Chicago: Fitzroy Dearborn Publishers, 1997.


Katz, Friedrich. The Life and Times of Pancho Villa. Stanford, Cal.: Stanford University Press, 1998.

    This book was long and hard to get through because of the details.  Since we were going for a more broad perspective on the Revolution and not focusing on Pancho Villa specifically, this was not the best source for us to use.


Mayo, Samuel. A History of Mexico: From Pre-Columbia to Present. Englewood Heights, New Jersey: Prentice-Hall, Inc., 1978.

    This source offered plenty of background information for the history of Mexico and some of the main events of the time.  The focus was to be general and the Revolution only took a few pages to cover but the information given was clear and understandable.
