Review Quotes
"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

Summaries
Main Description
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."
