Synopsis

En tan sólo 15 años México se vio sacudido por la revolución de Ayutla, que acabaría con la dictadura de Santa Anna, la batalla por la Constitución de 1857, el golpe militar y la guerra de Reforma; la intervención anglo-franco-española; la agresión militar francesa y la guerra de guerrillas contra el imperio de Maximiliano.Los protagonistas de la resistencia, de la república armada, fueron una generación de ciudadanos armados, endiabladamente inteligentes, agudos, esforzados, laboriosos; personajes terriblemente celosos de su independencia y espíritu crítico, honestos hasta la absoluta pobreza.Los liberales puros, los llamados rojos.

Una década de exhaustiva investigación culmina en esta obra de tres tomos en la que Paco Ignacio Taibo II consigue retratar las simpatías y enemistades, los errores y las genialidades de uno de los periodos más decisivos y fundacionales de nuestra historia nacional: los años que van de 1854 a 1867.

"God bless us all Mexicans, from one defeat to another, we have finally opened the doors of definite victory. The age of reason is upon us, our very own Age of Enlightenment".

"¿And for how long?," asked Guillermo Prieto, while the coarse and gentle breeze of the afternoon blew through his tawny hair. Ignacio Ramírez, known by his friends and enemies as the Necromancer, hesitated; for an instant, he fiddled with goat-like beard. Prieto did not let him finish thinking:

"I am sorry for my pessimism attack. ¿Does it even matter? A second of brightness, ten minutes, two years... and then, start all over again. ¿Is that not the fate of a wise nation? ¿To eternally fight?"

In just 15 years, Mexico was shaken by the revolution of Ayutla, which would put an end to Santa Anna's dictatorship, the battle for the Constitution of 1857, the military coop and the War of the Reform; the Anglo-French-Spanish intervention; the French military attack and the guerrilla warfare against the Empire of Maximiliano. The protagonists of the resistance, of the armed republic, were a generation of armed, devilishly clever, sharp, hard-working, committed citizens; characters who were terribly protective of their independence and of a critical spirit, and always honest, even in absolute poverty: the pure liberals, the so-called reds.

A decade of exhaustive research culminates in this work of three volumes in which Paco Ignacio Taibo II manages to portray the friendships and enmities, as well as the mistakes and the strokes of genius of one of the most decisive and crucial periods of our national history: the years between 1854 to 1867.
