About the Author

Ricardo Flores Magón was born in 1874 in a small Mexican village. Through his newspaper Regeneration, he boldly criticized the injustices of the country's dictatorship. Exiled to the United States, Flores Magón continued to be the most radical agitator for the Mexican Revolution and for universal liberation. Both countries responded with harsh repression. Leavenworth Penitentiary finally murdered him in 1922. Chaz Bufe has written for publication for the alternative press for a third of a century, beginning with a gig as a staff writer for "New Times Weekly" (Phoenix) in 1971. His writings have appeared in many publications. He has authored, co-authored, compiled/edited, and/or translated seven other books. Born in San German, Puerto Rico, Mitchell Cowen Verter publishes as El Libro Libre and is the translator of the bilingual edition of Ricardo Flores Magón's play Tierra y Libertad.
