Despite unprecedented economic growth, the injustices and turmoil endured by Mexico over the course of Porfirio Diaz’s three-decade presidency would lead to the outbreak of that country’s biggest social revolution. In this profusely-illustrated history book for children, the events surrounded Porfirio Diaz’s mandate are narrated in a simple, clear style. The book’s profuse illustrations contribute to a didactic and comprehensive understanding of the Porfiriato. The supplementary charts and the timeline spanning the 1876-1911 period help organize and narrow down the most relevant facts in this crucial chapter of Mexican history.
