The Age of gold ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The New World brought Spain enormous treasures: gold, silver, chocolate, tomatoes, the potato. Yet Spain's most powerful ruler, Philip II, lived in austere solitude in a cell-like study. He sought to protect the Catholic faith, while Cervantes questioned all values in Don Quixote. Velázquez painted masterpieces of psychological penetration that vaulted the Atlantic
The Conflict of the gods ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In his lifetime Carlos Fuentes has witnessed the rediscovery of ancient Aztec temples beneath the central square of modern Mexico City. He retraces the Indian world through their magnificent pyramids and sculptures. The return of their exiled god was forecast for the very year Cortés reached their shores. The savagery of the conquistador equaled that of the Indian, but he brought with him a new god, a god who sacrificed himself for men
The Price of freedom ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Every year a million Mexicans gather in their capital to celebrate El Grito, the cry for independence. Following its progress, Carlos Fuentes crosses the Andes in the steps of Bolívar and San Martín. The liberators succeeded in throwing off the Spanish yoke, but they found it harder to establish a just society. For the gaucho there was the consolation of the open spaces, the mountains, and the plains. And for those crowding into the new cities like Buenos Aires, there was tango, a sad thought that can be danced
Unfinished business ( Visual )
4 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Within the lifetime of those born now, half the population of the U.S. will be Spanish-speaking. Every year, half a million brave the border patrols to enter the U.S. illegally, "searching for the Gringo gold but also bringing the Latino gold." Hispanic immigrants contribute a wealth of traditions: diverse cultural creativity in art, music, and dance, respect for family ties--distinct hallmarks of the Spanish-speaking world

Henri Cartier-Bresson, Mexican notebooks, 1934-1964 by Henri Cartier-Bresson ( Book )
4 editions published in 1995 in English and Spanish and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This new book brings together for the first time a collection of photographs taken on two separate visits to Mexico - the first in 1934, just as the young twenty-seven-year-old was embarking on his photographic career, and the second some thirty years later. The dramatic images, preceded by a thought-provoking commentary from Carlos Fuentes, record with brutal accuracy the panorama of everyday life - an execution wall; crowded markets; stark, dusty landscapes; children playing in alleys - a unique record of a country and its people that includes some of the most famous and powerful photographic images of the century." --Book Jacket
