9780140185805: The Lawless Roads (Twentieth-Century Classics)

In the late 1930s, Graham Greene was commissioned to visit Mexico and find out how the inhabitants had reacted to the brutal anti-clerical purges of President Calles. His journey took him through the tropical states of Chiapas and Tabasco, where all the churches had been destroyed or closed and the priests driven out or shot; and it provided him with the setting and themes for his novel "The Power and the Glory". This book describes his travel experiences in Mexico.

From the Inside Flap:

In 1938 Graham Greene went to Mexico to investigate the aftermath of the brutal anti-clerical purges. Travelling through the tropical states of Chiapas and Tabasco, where all the churches had been closed or destroyed and the priests driven away or shot, he found an oppressed and impoverished people having to worship in secret. His experiences in Mexico provided the setting and theme for one of his greatest novels, The Power and the Glory.

From the Back Cover:

Journey Without Maps and The Lawless Roads reveal Greene’s ravening spiritual hunger, a desperate need to touch rock bottom both within the self and in the humanly created world.” – Times Higher Education Supplement
