"Mayo does brilliant job combining the known facts of the
Mexican Revolution and Madero's role within it, and creates an
intellectual bridge to the president's spiritist belief structure.

was deeply rooted in a sharply defined vision for a future Mexico.

Mayo opened this incredible window into the metaphysical side
of the Mexican Revolution"
