At the turn
of this 21st century, interest and research in exploring and
communicating with the dead, angels, and other entities, has

Madero and, therefore, the Mexican Revolution of 1910, and Madero's
Presidency. This list, as the other lists and information on
this website, is intended only to enrich the reader's understanding
of this work's context.
