 Amazon.com: The Eagle's Throne: A Novel: Books: Carlos Fuentes,Kristina Cordero   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Such speculative machinations are the subject of Fuentes's The Eagle's Throne, published in 2002 in Mexico and now appearing for the first time in an energetic English translation by Kristina Cordero.
Years ago, I sat in on a wonderful college course taught by Fuentes, and I distinctly recall him saying that he didn't like science fiction because "the future doesn't exist."

In The Eagle's Throne, he portrays and dissects the tragicomedy of Mexican political culture with an air of extraordinary authority and remorseless humor.
