Description
 
Rebecca West (au); Bernard Schweizer (ed) (in). This daring & provocative work by a major 20th-cent. writer is an exploration of Mexican history, religion, & culture. Although West never brought “Survivors” to completion, she left behind a series of extensive drafts & revisions that Schweizer has  assembled & edited. The result is a compelling travel memoir/history comparable to West’s best work. Her narrative takes on Mexican history -- the conquest by Spain, the Mexican Revolution, & the muralist movement -- & explores the inner lives of such figures as Cortes, Montezuma, the Reclus brothers, Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, Dr. Atl, & Leon Trotsky. West draws fascinating connections between consciousness & material life, between subjective desire & social agency, & between art & politics.
