Description: From time immemorial, Mexico's legendary beauty - from its torrid tropical coasts and lush valleys to its high, dry plateaus and towering volcanoes - has been matched by intense historical drama. Mayan mythmakers, Aztec emperors, Spanish conquistadors, Yankee and French invaders, dictators, and peasant revolutionaries are not only part of Mexico's past but still vivid influences in its present. And now, writes Carlos Fuentes, Mexico is facing a new time, even as it must stay true to its place in history. Torn between tradition and modernity, impatient with an exhausted political system but unsure how and with what to replace it, Mexicans are struggling to make the transition from authoritarian to democratic politics. But where will they find the serenity and strength to respond to their political, economic, and moral crises? Fuentes's hold and timely study discusses the origins and nature of the unforeseen, tumultuous events that have recently transformed Mexico's politics and society. The year 1994 began with the rebellion in Chiapas and continued with a rash of assassinations, the break between Presidents Salinas and Zedillo, and continual traumas for a society that has never known - yet hungers for - democratic self-rule. Fuentes takes us on his personal quest for the human meaning of this new time; his urgent assessment is a major statement from one of Mexico's wisest, most influential commentators.
