MEXICO: Radicals, Revolutionaries and Exiles: Mexico City in the 1920s


Barry Carr delves into the ferment of post-Revolutionary life in Mexico City.

In the interwar era, cities across the Americas became hubs in transnational networks that linked radicals and revolutionaries of all kinds: anarchists, Wobblies, Socialists, Communists, Garveyites, political exiles, and vanguard intellectuals. While there were a number of these urban hubs — New York, Tampa, New Orleans, and Havana all played a role — the largest by far was Mexico City.
