The Life and Times of Mexico PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Life and Times of Mexico free pdf The fascinating and heartbreaking reality of Mexico is revealed in this account of its history, art, politics, religion and people. In this grand narrative, driven by 3,000 years of history, Mexico is seen here as if it were a prison, but in the Aztec way - the mind, the heart, the winds of life - and on every page there are portraits and stories: artists, shamans, teachers, a young Maya political leader - the rich few and the many poor. Earl Shorris is ingenious at finding ways to tell this story: prostitutes in the Plaza Loreto launch the discussion of economics- we are taken inside two crucial elections as Mexico struggles towards democracy- we watch the creation of a popular 'telenovela' and meet the country's greatest living intellectual. The result is a work of magnificent scope and profound insight into the divided soul Mexico.
