Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Other Campaign is a collection of texts by Subcomandante Marcos and his Zapatista compañeros that articulate a vision for “change from below,” a call to create social change beyond the limits of electoral politics. As Mexico approaches the presidential elections, Marcos and supporters are touring the country in an effort to build a broad-based movement. The book includes a recent interview with Marcos and speeches made by Zapatista comandantes, as well as the Zapatistas’ “Sixth Declaration of the Lacandón Jungle,” which places the indigenous struggle for democracy in its historical context and articulates an evolving vision for democracy, dignity, and justice.

Subcomandante Marcos is a spokesperson and strategist for the Zapatistas.

Book News Annotation:

Since emerging as armed insurgency group from Mexico's Lacandon Jungle in 1994, the Zapatistas have constantly shifted their strategic focus in response to changing political conditions in Mexico. Their latest initiative is the Other Campaign, so named to indicate their opposition to and disdain for the Presidential electoral politics happening at the same time. As part of the Other Campaign, Zapatista spokesman Subcomandante Marcos and his compañeros have been traveling the country, seeking to forge connections with other indigenous and resistance groups. This volume contains the Sixth Declaration of the Lacandon Jungle, explaining the rationale of the Other Campaign, and a short interview with Marcos himself, further elaborating. The texts are presented in both Spanish and English on facing pages. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

About the Author

Subcomandante Insurgente Marcos, or Subcomandante Marcos,is the de facto spokesman for the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (EZLN), a Mexican rebel movement. He is known as Delegado Cero in matters concerning the Other Campaign. Marcos is an author, political poet, and outspoken opponent of globalization, capitalism and neo-liberalism. Marcos wants the Mexican constitution changed to recognize the rights of the country's indigenous Mexicans. The internationally known guerrillero has been described as a "new" and "postmodern" Che Guevara, or a cross between Mad Max and Zorro. Since 1994, his writings have been published internationally in several languages.
