The Wind That Swept Mexico: The Photographic History of the Mexican Revolution, 1910-1942

The Wind That Swept Mexico: The Photographic History of the Mexican Revolution, 1910-1942 (text Anita Brenner; 184 historical photographs assembled by George R. Leighton). "...This book, originally published in hardback by Harper & Brothers in 1943, is once again available, in a 1971 paperback edition from the University of Texas Press. The book is divided in two: Brenner's essay in four sections comes first, but is not included in this on-line reproduction. What is available here is the photographic section of the book: 184 images covering the history of the revolution, each with a caption drawn from Brenner's essay. The photos represent the work of a variety of photographers, assembled by Leighton. His brief essay on the role of photography in documenting the revolution is also included here, as well as the chronology, and credits for photographers where names were known. These images were scanned from the original 1943 edition."
