This study analyzes the peasant and anarchist movement as foundational to La Revolución [the Mexican Revolution] and the revolutionary processes that lead to and followed La Revolución. The study makes the case that unique nature of La Revolución deserves far more analysis. Informed by the work of historian Eric Hobsbawm, La Revolución was born directly out of the world stage; its contradictions were born out of the developing and colonial world. It was during the period of La Revolución, that the fate of the country was ultimately changed by the likes of those who participated in it. The study asks the following research questions: How did the events of La Revolución change the history of Mexico? What sort of events between 1910 and 1940, as well as the laws and regulations that were made during La Revolución affected Mexico during this time, and how did it shape the nation in the end? Finally the study asks how La Revolución changed the thought processes and ideas regarding nationhood and citizenship.
