MEXICO UNCONQUERED draws on Gibler's many years of work in Mexico and especially his last three years of reporting directly from areas in central and northern Mexico that have been devastated by the impacts of forced labor migration and the violence related to drug trafficking, and his reporting on social rebellions in Oaxaca, Chiapas, and Guerrero.

"Through research, critical analysis, and superb first-hand reporting culled from years of living in Mexico, Gibler shares the voices, stories, and communal dignity of the ordinary Mexicans who are putting their lives at risk by challenging corrupt power as they build social movements for basic rights, justice, and autonomy. An exciting first book by an emerging young writer." -- Howard Zinn
