B. Traven was the pen-name of Ret Marut, a German anarchist who was a
commissar/minister for culture in the short-lived Bavarian soviet government
of 1919 and who went into exile in Mexico after its fall.
This information is from "The Man Who Was B. Traven" by Will Wyatt, a BBC
executive who produced a BBC TV documentary on the subject in the 80's.
His (i.e. Traven's) books *are* rather good
