Based on decades of research in the archives of seven countries, this definitive study of Villa aims to separate myth from history. So much attention has focused on Villa himself that the characteristics of his movement, which is unique in Latin American history and in some ways unique among twentieth-century revolutions, have been forgotten or neglected. Villa´s Division del Norte was probably the largest revolutionary army that Latin America ever produced. Moreover, this was one of the few revolutionary movements with which a U.S. administration attempted, not only to come to terms, but even to forge an alliance. The first part of the book deals with Villa´s early life as an outlaw and his emergence as a secondary leader of the Mexican Revolution, and also discusses the special conditions that transformed the state of Chihuahua into a leading center of revolution. In the second part, beginning in 1913, Villa emerges as a national leader. The author analyzes the nature of his revolutionary movement and the impact of Villismo as an ideology and as a social movement. The third part of the book deals with the years 1915 to 1920: Villa´s guerrilla warfare, his attack on Columbus, New Mexico, and his subsequent decline. The last part describes Villa´s surrender, his brief life as a hacendado, his assassination and its aftermath, and the evolution of the Villa legend. The book concludes with an assessment of Villa´s personality and the character and impact of his movement. A ´´Best Book of 1998´´ ´´Library Journal selection ´´This is the definitive work on Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa. . . . The work is exhaustively researched and scrupulously documented; it also makes for engrossing reading, as Latin America specialist Katz takes hold of the legend, gives it a good shaking, and comes up with something far more complex.´´--´´Library Journal starred review ´´A splendid work that can be enjoyed by the general reader and by scholars of the period on both sides of the border.´´ --´´The Journal of American History
The character you loved to hate in Chaser becomes the character you will simply love in Raining Men. It´s been raining men for most of Bobby Nelson´s adult life. Normally, he wouldn´t have it any other way, but lately something´s missing. Now, he wants the deluge to slow to a single special drop. But is it even possible for Bobby to find ´´the one´´ after endless years of hooking up? When Bobby´s father passes away, Bobby finally examines his rocky relationship with the man and how it might have contributed to his inability to find the love he yearns for. Guided by a sexy therapist, a Sex Addicts Anonymous group, a well-endowed Chihuahua named Johnny Wadd, and Bobby´s own cache of memories, Bobby takes a spiritual, sexual, and emotional journey to discover that life´s most satisfactory love connections lie in quality, not quantity. And when he´s ready to love not only himself but someone else, sex and love fit, at last, into one perfect package. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Solo.

Key West has a new hero. He weighs four pounds and stands eight inches off the ground. His name is Nacho and he’s the bravest, shrewdest, funniest Chihuahua you will ever meet. He’ll do anything to help his master, the retired mafioso Bert the Shirt, and his friends - especially the beautiful Rita, with whom Nacho is smitten from the very first time she reaches down to scratch his ears. Wise-cracking Rita, straight out of Jersey, is new in town and needs a job. A gig at Wreckers Rum seems promising, but there’s something, well, a little off about the place. It doesn’t sell much booze, yet maintains a classy tasting room on prime Key West waterfront. Where’s the money coming from? Who’s the oddly chivalrous mobster behind the operation? What’s up with the crazy scientist in flip-flops toiling away in his triple-locked lab behind the distillery? And how might Rita get closer to the irresistible but aloof young chief distiller whose only passion seems to be for making rum? Determined to find both answers and true love, undaunted Rita lands herself in some very hot water - hot rum, actually - and it will take a special kind of devoted and unleashed hero to rescue her. Oh...and one more thing about Nacho. He’s not just brave; he talks, lending plenty of loopy canine wisdom to this rollicking, sun-drenched story of rum and romance, chemistry and crime, friendship, family, and the sacred responsibilities of loyalty. 1.
