By Douglas W. Richmond
Synthesizing an intensive and heterogeneous diversity of assets, Douglas W. Richmond covers 3 tumultuous political upheavals of this era. First, Mexico’ s fledgling republic tried to impose a liberal ideology at odds with conventional Maya tradition on Yucatá n; then, the French-backed regime of Emperor Maximilian started to reform Yucatá n; and, eventually, the republican forces of Benito Juá rez restored the liberal hegemony. Many matters spurred resistance to those liberal governments. Instillation of loose alternate rules, the suppression of civil rights, and persecution of the Roman Catholic Church mobilized white competition to liberal governors. The Mayas fought the seizure in their communal houses. A long-standing wish for nearby autonomy united nearly all Yucatecans. Richmond advances the thought-provoking argument that Yucatá n either fared greater below Maximilian’ s moment Empire than lower than the liberal republic and may have thrived extra had the second one Empire now not collapsed.
The such a lot violent and bloody manifestation of those extensive conflicts was once the Caste warfare (Guerra de Castas), the longest sustained peasant rebel in Latin American historical past. the place different students have encouraged the simplistic place that the warfare was once a Maya rebellion designed to reestablish a legendary earlier civilization, Richmond’ s refined recounting of political advancements from 1855 to 1876 restores nuance and complexity to this pivotal time in Yucatecan history.
Richmond’ s Conflict and Carnage in Yucatá n is a welcome boost to scholarship approximately Mexico and Yucatá n in addition to approximately country consolidation, empire, and regionalism.
