During the early 1880s, a wave of peasant unrest swept the mountainous Huasteca region of northeastern Mexico. This account traces the material and ideological roots of the rebellion to nineteenth-century liberal policies of land privatization and to the growth of a radical anarcho-communist agrarian consciousness.
