Book Talk: Kelly Lytle Hernández presents "Bad Mexicans: Race, Empire and Revolution in the Borderlands"
Bad Mexicans (Norton, 2022) tells the dramatic story of the magonistas, the migrant rebels who sparked the 1910 Mexican Revolution from the United States. Taking readers to the frontlines of the magonista uprising and the counterinsurgency campaign that failed to stop them, Kelly Lytle Hernández puts the magonista revolt at the heart of U.S. history.
