Book Description:
This is the first major, book length memoir of a political prisoner from Mexico's 'dirty war' of the 1970s. Written with the urgency of a first person narrative, it is a unique work, providing an inside story of guerrilla activities and a gripping tale of imprisonment and torture at the hands of the Mexican government. Alberto Ulloa Bornemann was a young idealist when he dedicated himself to clandestine resistance and to assisting Lucio Cabanas, the guerrilla leader of the 'Party of the Poor'. Here, the author exposes readers to the day to day activities of revolutionary activists seeking to avoid discovery by government forces. After his capture, Ulloa Bornemann endured disappearance into a secret military jail and later abusive conditions in three civilian prisons. Although testimonios of former political prisoners from other Latin American nations have recently come into print, there are very few books about Mexico's political wars and none as vivid and disturbing as this.
