From the dust jacket-
"Following the success of his Portrait of America, Diego Rivera has now gathered into one book all his significant work, both mural and canvas, done in his native land, and presents his world-renowned portrayal of Mexico, its people, its history, its struggles and aspirations. Here are his famous frescoes in the Education Building, the Agricultural School, the Palace of Cortez at Cuernavaca, the hitherto unpublished National Palace and Health Building Murals, the original Hotel Reforma carnival paintings recently mutilated by their proprietor in the latest of Rivera's stormy controversies, four stained glass windows, and 102 of his most distinguished canvases, the artist's own personal selection: truly a vivid, all-inclusive portrait of Mexico."
