So this was a tough choice for me between The People Of The Abyss and Insurgent Mexico. In the end I went with Insurgent Mexico. I welcome the opportunity to learn more about Villa as for the most part all of the portrayals I have seen of him have been almost 'Frito Bandito' caricatures. That and he is tied up with an interesting time in history; the Mexican revolution, the Zimmermann Telegram, the US entry into WWI. This book would generate and interesting discussion I believe and I hope it wins. In any case it is a good selection of alternatives this month.
