On January 1, 1994, in the impoverished state of Chiapas in southern Mexico, the Zapatista rebellion shot into the international spotlight. In this fully revised third edition of their classic study of the rebellion's roots, George Collier and Elizabeth Lowery Quaratiello paint a vivid picture of the historical struggle for land faced by the Maya Indians, who are among Mexico's poorest people. Examining the roles played by Catholic and Protestant clergy, revolutionary and peasant movements, the oil boom and the debt crisis, NAFTA and the free trade era, and finally the growing global justice movement, the authors provide a rich context for understanding the uprising and the subsequent history of the Zapatistas and rural Chiapas, up to the present day.

From Booklist:

A study by Stanford professor Collier and freelance journalist Quaratiello delves into the conditions that led to the Zapatista rebellion in the Mexican state of Chiapas. Collier's perspective is based on more than 30 years of research involvement, during which Collier studied agriculture among the peasants of Chiapas' highlands. Together with Quaratiello, he explores the "forces--domestic and international"--that resulted in the ultimately volatile situation that erupted in January 1994. The densely written treatise gives an in-depth, overall history of Chiapas, from religious and ethnic influences to the political and economic conditions that have impacted the area the most. The work illuminates a difficult situation, providing a scholarly but readable resource for social issues collections. Alice Joyce

Review:

Praise for Basta!
“George Collier’s inquiry into the roots of the Zapatista rebellion lucidly reveals their depth and intricacy. But it goes well beyond these fascinating and inspiring developments in rural Mexico, illuminating fundamental and I think ominous tendencies in the socioeconomic order. It is a penetrating and thoughtful study, with far-reaching implications.”
―Noam Chomsky, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
“Basta! documents and analyzes the results of decades of changing land patterns, the ransacking of the Lacandón jungle, and the governments’ desperate programs to maintain its political hold.”
―Saul Landau, The Progressive
