Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"In the near future, at a meeting of the United States Security Council, Mexico's idealistic president has dared to vote against the U.S. occupation of Colombia and Washington's refusal to pay OPEC prices for oil. Retaliation is swift. Concocting a 'glitch' in a Florida satellite, America's president cuts off Mexico's communications systems--no phones, faxes, or e-mails--and plunges the country into an administrative nightmare of colossal proportions. Now, despite the motto that 'a Mexican politician never puts anything into writing,' people have no choice but to communicate through letters, which Fuentes crafts with a keen understanding of man's motives and desires"--Inside front cover.
