520    "Biography of a Hacienda is a many-voiced reconstruction 
       of events leading up to the Mexican Revolution and the 
       legacy that remains to the present day. Drawing on 
       ethnohistorical, archaeological, and ethnographic data, 
       Elizabeth Terese Newman creates a fascinating model of the
       interplay between the great events of the Revolution and 
       the lives of everyday people.  In 1910 the Mexican 
       Revolution erupted out of a century of tension surrounding
       land ownership and control over labor. During the previous
       century, the elite ruling classes acquired ever-
       increasingly large tracts of land while peasants saw their
       subsistence and community independence vanish. Rural 
       working conditions became so oppressive that many resorted
       to armed rebellion. After the war, new efforts were made 
       to promote agrarian reform, and many of Mexico's rural 
       poor were awarded the land they had farmed for 
       generations.  Weaving together fiction, memoir, and data 
       from her fieldwork, Newman reconstructs life at the 
       Hacienda San Miguel Acocotla, a site located near a remote
       village in the Valley of Atlixco, Puebla, Mexico. 
       Exploring people's daily lives and how they affected the 
       buildup to the Revolution and subsequent agrarian reforms,
       the author draws on nearly a decade of interdisciplinary 
       study of the Hacienda Acocotla and its descendant 
       community. Newman's archaeological research recovered 
       information about the lives of indigenous people living 
       and working there in the one hundred years leading up to 
       the Mexican Revolution.  Newman shows how women were 
       central to starting the revolt, and she adds their voices 
       to the master narrative. Biography of a Hacienda concludes
       with a thoughtful discussion of the contribution of the 
       agrarian revolution to Mexico's history and whether it has
       succeeded or simply transformed rural Mexico into a new 
       "global hacienda system."--|cProvided by publisher.
