The Mexican magazine Plural (1971-1976) is a privileged vantage point from which to assess the developments that transformed Mexican and Latin American literary and political culture in the 1970s.  Edited by the Nobel prize winner Octavio Paz at a time in which he was reassessing his political and nationalistic commitments, it featured the editorial partnership of a heterogeneous group of Mexican writers.  The book offers a detailed analysis of a vitally important moment in Mexican cultural and political history, in the aftermath of the 1968 massacre of students in Tlatelolco, Mexico City, at a time when a new president was seeking to repair the fractured relationship between intellectuals and the state.  The most important figure in the magazine was its editor Octavio Paz and the study offers a fresh interpretation of the development of his political thought and artistic concerns in arguably the most vital and productive period of his life.
