- Catholic priest and social critic Ivan Illich is best known for books that skewered the dominant institutions of the West in the 1970s. Of the two periods of Illich's time in Mexico, the 'Catholic period' from 1961 to 1967 has received little attention, but in many ways it was the foundation and source of the better-known 'secular period' from 1967 to 1976. This book clarifies both periods and explains the relationship between them.
