    'The Eagle's Throne' is the long-awaited novel from one of the world's greatest authors, Carlos Fuentes. Set in the near future, 'The Eagle's Throne' is a black comedy of the darkest proportions. In retaliation for a Mexican vote against the U.S. in the United Nations Security Council, the United States 'accidentally' cuts of Mexico's communications systems. Without phones, faxes or e-mails, Mexico is faced with an administrative disaster. As officials of all levels scramble to achieve the power they so desperately crave, Mexico is left teetering on the brink of dictatorship. With 'The Eagle's Throne', Carlos Fuentes has crafted a provocative and challenging tale of modern global politics.

    The Good Conscience is Carlos Fuentes's second novel. The scene is Guanajuato, a provincial capital in Central Mexico, once one of the world's richest mining centers. The Ceballos family has been reinstated to power, and adolescent Jaime Ceballos, its only heir, is torn between the practical reality of his family's life and the idealism of his youth and his Catholic education. His father is a good man but weak; his uncle is powerful, yet his actions are inconsistent with his professed beliefs. Jaime's struggle to emerge as a man with a "good conscience" forms the theme of the book: can a rebel correct the evils of an established system and at the same time retain the integrity of his principles?
