For my final paper, I decided to write about Porfirio Diaz who was a Mexican president for 35 years and before that he was a general who played a great role in the Mexican revolution. Under his regime, Mexico became united and safe from warlords. Also, he developed a stable economy for Mexico before him the treasure was completely empty. Porfirio Diaz’s biggest legacy is a strong centralized government for Mexico. However, just like other human beings, he was not perfect. Porfirio Diaz did not really care and helped with the lower class citizens. For books, I choose, â€œPorfirio Diazâ€ by Paul Garner and
â€œThe Mexican Revolution, 1910-1940â€ Michael J. Gonzales.
