After completing his medical studies at Guadalajara, Azuela began his medical practice in 1899. In his spare time he wrote short stories and novels, publishing the first of these, Maria Luisa, in 1907. In 1911, he was made Director of Education for the State of Jalisco under the Madero government. In 1915, he joined Francisco "Pancho" Villa's revolutionary army as a surgeon. When Villa was defeated, Azuela went to El Paso, Texas, where he wrote his novel, The Underdogs (Los de abajo) depicting the military exploitation of the Mexican people and taken from his real-life experiences. He returned to Mexico in 1916 and resumed his medical practice, while continuing to write. In 1949, he was awarded the National Prize for Literature. Among his other works are Los Fracasados (The Defeated - 1908), Mala Yerba (1909), Los Caciques (The Bosses - 1917), Las Moscos (The Flies - 1918), San Gabriel de Valdivias (1938), Avanzada (1940), and La Marchanta (1944).
