A Persistent RevolutionIn an article recently published in the portal Revista Común, Kellogg Institute PhD Fellow Jorge Ivan Puma Crespo (history) reviews Randall Sheppard’s book about the unexpected rise of Mexican revolutionary nationalism in the first two decades of the 21st century.

"Sheppard's book is an essential text to understand the persistence of a historical narrative that portrays Mexican history through the 'mythology' of its popular revolutions," Puma Crespo said. "A Persistent Revolution is a real departure from questions centered in American understandings of Mexican politics and society, and it invites us to converge in a real conversation where Mexican ideas, politics, and interests are taken into account."
