Synopsis: In the late 1930s, Graham Greene was commissioned to visit Mexico to report on how the inhabitants had reacted to the brutal anticlerical purges of President Calles. The Lawless Roads is his spellbinding record of that journey. Taking 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, that provided him with the setting and theme for one of his greatest novels, The Power and the Glory. This Penguin Classics edition features an introduction by David Rieff.

From the Inside Flap: In 1938 Graham Greene went to Mexico to investigate the aftermath of the brutal anti-clerical purges. Travelling through the tropical states of Chiapas and Tabasco, where all the churches had been closed or destroyed and the priests driven away or shot, he found an oppressed and impoverished people having to worship in secret. His experiences in Mexico provided the setting and theme for one of his greatest novels, The Power and the Glory.
