Summary

In the late thirties 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 theme for one of his greatest novels, The Power and the Glory.
