The revolution in Oaxaca---a reading list

I've had several requests for more information on the revolution in Oaxaca, which I mentioned during the "Romance of the Revolution" panel at WisCon, so I've compiled a short reading list. (More materials can be found via Google News, of course.) The photos were taken last summer by Tom LaFarge and are displayed here with his kind permission.
