    Excellent book Such a wonderful way to look at history I only wish that I had a stronger background knowledge of the Mexican Revolution going into this book You don't NEED to but it would help because this book is really not about the Mexican Revolution It's of a social and cultural history of El Paso and Juarez during that time period I learned about how the border used to be fluid until Mayor Lea of El Paso became convinced that he was going to get typhus from Mexicans coming into the city I learned that Juarez was the place to BE during Prohibition And I learned that Pancho Villa had signed with a film company to make movies of all his battles but they found the real thing too boring They made him dress up in a special uniform and they made him schedule executions for when there was better light
