This book is an attempt to illustrate by a recital of facts the nature of a struggle that has gone on in a neighboring country. It is not a controversial work, still less is it a work of scholarship on the Mexican situation. It is not a historical account of all Mexican events. It is designed to give the reader as vivid a picture as possible of how the Mexican people have lived during that time, particularly if they took sides with the Church in the struggle. Contents: dilemma; challenge; defiance; Father Pro; hidden shepherds; veiled heroines; three months; solution? meditation at Tepozotlan; political interlude; picking up the threads; splendor before the storm; catacombs; deadlock; rivalry; kaleidoscope; doom and verdict; decency says farewell.
