Diario De Oaxaca (eBook)
A Sketchbook Journal Of Two Years In Mexico
de Peter Kuper
Sobre o livro
When award-winning cartoonist Peter Kuper and his wife and daughter moved to the beautiful 16th-century colonial town of Oaxaca in 2006, they planned to spend a quiet year or two enjoying a different culture and taking a break from the U.S. political climate under the Bush administration. What they hadn't counted on was landing in the epicentre of Mexico's biggest political struggle in recent years - events that unfolded around a teachers' strike and led to a seven-month siege. Timely and compelling, this extraordinary first-hand account presents a distinct artistic vision of Oaxacan life, from explorations of the beauty of the environment to graphic portrayals of the fight between strikers and government troops that left more than twenty people dead, including American journalist Brad Will. This expanded paperback edition includes 32 pages of new material.
