Citizens and Believers

Religion and Politics in Revolutionary Jalisco, 1900–1930
By Robert Curley



This book shows the centrality of religion to the making of the 1910 Mexican revolution. It goes beyond conventional studies of church-state conflict to focus on Catholics as political subjects whose religious identity became a fundamental aspect of citizenship during the first three decades of the twentieth century.
