MEXICAN MURAL by Lois Hobart


Email this review


The magnificent past is not allowed to overshadow the real present or the hopeful future of our neighbors to the south in this admirable survey. This is an intelligent presentation of Mexico for younger readers. First the colorful history of the country, the Mexico's emergence as an independent politico-economic unit and then the arts and the industries are described in concise and readable prose. The author has not avoided discussing the abysmal poverty that still exists in some quarters, the continuing battle against ignorance and also goes into the touchier areas of Mexico's Church/State set up as well as U.S./ Mexican relations.
