Inhaltsangabe: Written with a poet's sensibility and a diplomat's sense of history, these essays view a contemporary world poised betwen the upheaval of the 1960s and the uncertainties of the 1980s with vision, freshness, and depth. Whether focusing on the prosperity without grandeur of contemporary Europe, the inconsistencies of American "imperial democracy," the "paralyzed mammoth" of the Soviet totalitarian empire, or the ominous lesson of Iran and the pains and dangers of modernization, Paz's views of a dividing yet increasingly interdependent world are as clear as they are original. His closing plea for a Latin American style of democracy rooted in native traditions as an alternative to solutions tainted by violence provides an eloquent coda to this sensitive and visionary collection of essays.
Synopsis: This collection of essays is divided into two sections. The first section looks at changes in opinion and outlook in the nations of the old world including the crisis of imperial democracy in the US, bureaucratic domination in Russia and modernization - its dangers and its difficulties. The second section looks, in detail, at Latin America. Octavio Paz is the winner of the 1990 Nobel Prize for Literature.
