Voices from exile : violence and survival in modern Maya history by Víctor Montejo( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elilal, exile, is the condition of thousands of Mayas who have fled their homelands in Guatemala to escape repression and even death at the hands of their government. In this book, Victor Montejo, who is both a Maya expatriate and an anthropologist, gives voice to those who until now have struggled in silence but who nevertheless have found ways to reaffirm and celebrate their Mayaness." "Voices from Exile is the authentic story of one group of Mayas from the Kuchumatan highlands who fled into Mexico and sought refuge there. Montejo's combination of autobiography, history, political analysis, and testimonial narrative offers a profound exploration of state terror and its inescapable human cost."--(back cover)
