An epicintellectual history of Latin America by one of the region’s most prominentthinkers

Inhis first book to appear in English since Mexico: Biography in Power, awork which the Wall Street Journal calls “the standard history ofpostcolonial Mexico,” prize-winning author Enrique Krauzeilluminates the evolution of political, social, and philosophical discourses inLatin America. With echoes of Richard Hofstadter and Edmund Wilson, Krauze explores the Latin American intellectual traditionby deftly animating its decisive figures, from Octavio Paz to Che Guevara, José Vasconcelos toHugo Chávez, and inscribing them upon a vivid landscape of patriotism,opportunism, morality, and avarice—and of love, honor, loyalty, and identity. Redeemersdelivers an unparalleled explication of the roots of ideology and action inLatin America today.

Enrique Krauze is the author of twenty books, includingMexico: Biography of Power. He has written forThe New York Times,The New Republic,Dissentmagazine,The Washington Post, andThe New York Review of Books. Krauze lives in Mexico City.
