La guerra sintética; novela del ambiente Mejicanoby Gram [David G. Ramirez](1937).This Spanish-language novel about the Cristero War was written by Mexican priest David G. Ramirez and published in San Antonio.  Ramirez came to San Antonio in the 1920s and lived here for about a decade.  The Cristero War (also called the Cristero Rebellion) from 1926-1929 was a popular movement that developed in response to anticlerical legislation and actions from the administration of President Plutarco Elías Calles’.  Primarily affecting western Mexico, the movement may have involved up to 50,000 rebels at its height and came to include many individuals motivated not only by the religious issues at stake, but by frustration with insufficient land and the increasingly powerful (and intrusive) central government.
