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 Cabaas, 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 warsOCoand none as vivid and disturbing as this."
