"Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna (1794-1876) is one of the most famous (and infamous), figures in Mexican history. Six times the country's president, he is consistently depicted as a traitor, a turncoat, and a tyrant -- the exclusive cause of all of Mexico's misfortunes following the country's independence from Spain. He is also, as this biography makes clear, grossly misrepresented." [From the rear cover copy]. View more info
