p. 273. The Madero revolt and regime (1910–1913)locked

  • Alan Knight


Francisco Madero, scion of one of northern Mexico’s richest families, had led the unsuccessful opposition of early 1910 in the liberal-democratic tradition. ‘The Madero revolt and regime’ explains how the Díaz victory in the 1910 election provided the impetus for armed revolt in rural areas. The Treaty of Ciudad Juárez in early 1911 ended the Maderista revolution as well as the Porfirian regime, but the deal was not well received by rebel leaders: Orozco in the north and Zapata in the centre. Madero’s presidency saw opposition both from the Right and Left, but it was the rebellious insurgency of Zapatismo and Orozquismo looking for social reform that led to Madero’s downfall.
