Abstract

The 1994 Chiapas uprising by the Zapatista National Liberation Army in Mexico has produced a massive amount of research and writing about indigenous peoples and their movements. But no book in English has told the story of the ruling class against which the uprising took place. Aaron Bobrow-Strain's Intimate Enemies does an excellent job of filling this gap: he offers a nuanced account of the experiences of the ganaderos or cattle ranchers as they lost their land and their dominant position in the northern region of Chiapas, centered around the town of Chilón.
