The Witches of Power Amazingly, thousands of years after the Aztecs and the Maya employed sorcerers to help them govern, today's rulers are still using the same methods. The Witches of Power sheds light on the nebulous lives of Mexican politicians and their relationships with witches, spirits, and shamans. It reveals testimonies of the esoteric beliefs and practices of many important Mexican figures, from Francisco I. Madero to Marta Sahagn, Elba Esther Gordillo, the Salinas clan, Plutarco Elas Calles, Miguel Alemn Valds, Subcomandante Marcos, Francisco Barrio, and others. This historical investigation also shows how these pursuits can transcend the exercise of public office and carry over into a mythological world where all sorts of arts are employed in order to secure power and vanquish adversaries. The reader will encounter apparently unbelievable stories that suddenly become real in the mouths of direct witnesses who have worked with these political figures.
