There are many causes of the revolution of Mexico, some of the causes being the lack of political stability and economic reasons. Another cause of the Mexican revolution was the exploitation and mistreatment of the poor. The middle class unable to own land due to not having any wealth contributed to the political instability.

Slavery, in itself, was the most predominant reason for the breakup of the Union. It fundamentally divided the Free northern states and the Slave southern states, causing immediate tension. However, it was the various conflicts resultant of the central issue of slavery that truly plunged the Union into Civil War. The foremost of these tensions dealt with new territories, particularly those gained in the Mexican cession. The Mexican War was the direct result of “Manifest Destiny,” or the belief that the United States was ordained by God to control North America from coast to coast, which was introduced by the article used in Document 1.
Emiliano Zapata rebelled against the government and created a movement to overthrow Diaz. Zapata demanded land and seized haciendas for himself and his people and unleashed a new force among the mobs of angry peasants (Burns 197).

Robin Hood and the Merry Men on the other hand are approaching their problem of seeing to it that Prince John is overthrown and King Richard restored by collaborating together and working tirelessly and fiercely towards success. (2) Social Exchange Theory This theory suggests that you only get more if you give( Argyris, 1976).
In Diaz’s The Conquest of New Spain and the collection Broken Spears, the Spanish and Aztec perspectives of the conquest of Mexico are documented. The two accounts differ greatly due to opposing perspectives. These differences can be seen through Montezuma’s captivity, the Spanish pursuit for gold, and the religious disputes between the two groups. It is only by taking these discrepancies into consideration that historians are able to approach a realistic picture of the events. While the Spanish text focuses primarily on their virtues and successes, the Aztec writings emphasize the Spaniard’s destruction and cruelty.
