One of the most remarkable features of the 1994 uprising of the Ejército Zapatista de Liberación Nacional (EZLN) has been the vast discrepancy between its weak military power and its considerable global reach, the latter due in substantial measure to the eloquence of Rafael Sebastián Guillén Vicente, the masked Subcomandante Marcos. As Nick Henck argues in his lengthy and able new biography of Marcos, the EZLN spokesperson has become "the most famous guerrilla leader since Che Guevara" thanks to his "charisma, media savvy, and mystique."
