Overview

Now available in paper is Elena Poniatowska's gripping account of the massacre of student protesters by police at the 1968 Olympic Games, which Publishers Weekly claimed "makes the campus killings at Kent State and Jackson State in 1970 pale by comparison."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Heartbreaking. . . . A massive chronicle that builds to the night of the Tlatelolco massacre in an accumulation of skillfully crosscut eyewitness accounts."—Publishers Weekly

"Massacre in Mexico is a monument of a work. By turns pathetic and enraging, lyrical and humorous, this 'collage' of 'voices bearing historical witness,' as the author has described it, offers a steady gaze into Mexico's soul."—The News, Mexico City

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Poniatowska reports on the massacre of 325 unarmed Mexican students who were peacefully protesting police repression one week prior to the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City. PW called this ``heartbreaking. . . . A massive chronicle that builds to the night of the Tlatelolco massacre in an accumulation of skillfully crosscut eyewitness accounts.'' Photos. (Dec.)
Criticas
Essential reading for those interested in the Tlatelolco massacre or state repression in Latin America, this 1971 journalistic account by the award-winning novelist reports on the massacre of 325 unarmed Mexican students, workers, and teachers who were peacefully protesting police repression one week before the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City. Poniatowska (1932- ) skillfully constructs the buildup to the night of the massacre through compelling firsthand accounts of those who witnessed one of the worst cases of Mexican state repression.
