An epic intellectual history of Latin America by one of the region’s most prominent thinkersIn his first book to appear in English since Mexico: Biography in Power, a work which the Wall Street Journal calls “the standard history of postcolonial Mexico,” prize-winning author Enrique Krauze illuminates the evolution of political, social, and philosophical discourses in Latin America. With echoes of Richard Hofstadter and Edmund Wilson, Krauze explores the Latin American intellectual tradition by deftly animating its decisive figures, from Octavio Paz to Che Guevara, JosÉ Vasconcelos to Hugo ChÁvez, and inscribing them upon a vivid landscape of patriotism, opportunism, morality, and avarice—and of love, honor, loyalty, and identity. Redeemers delivers an unparalleled explication of the roots of ideology and action in Latin America today.
