The Lawless Roads, Paperback

The Lawless Roads Paperback



In 1938 Graham Greene was commissioned to visit Mexico to discover the state of the country and its people in the aftermath of 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.

The experiences were the inspiration for his acclaimed novel, "The Power and the Glory".
