UNSPECIFIED. (1996) Caciquismo in rural Mexico during the 1920s: The case of Gabriel Barrios. JOURNAL OF LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES, 28 (Part 1). pp. 105-128. ISSN 0022-216XFull text not available from this repository.
This article focuses upon the cacicazgo of the Indian leader, Gabriel Barrios Cabrera, who controlled the Sierra de Puebla, Mexico during the 1920s. An analysis is made of the methods employed by Barrios to establish a loyal following, and how his military potential gave him the opportunity to attain regional political dominance and beneficial relationships with his federal military and political superiors. It is argued that Barrios's actions were so strongly influenced by the Sierra's singular history and socio-ethnic characteristics, that previously identified trends in post-revolutionary regional politics cannot easily be applied to this isolated mountainous region.
