His books include Voodoo, The History of the Incas and Easter Island. Alfred Métraux took his own life by an overdose of barbiturates . He married Fernande Schulmann who accompanied him to Chile, Peru, and Brazil and who planned to work with him in Paraguay. He was survived also by his brother, Guy Metraux (1919-2000) of Paris, his sister, Vera Conne (1920-2009) of Lausanne, and by two sons: Eric Metraux (1927–92) from his first marriage, and Daniel Alfred Metraux (born 1948), the son of Rhoda Metraux.
Metraux summarizes the attempts at rebellion in the intervening centuries
The Incas were an illiterate group who conquered a hostile terrain, built roads, irrigation systems and monumental religious centers, achieving skills in craftsmanship in silver and gold rivaled only by the Maya in the New World. Metraux summarizes the attempts at rebellion in the intervening centuries. He ends on a hopeful note that where the descendants of the Inca groups have again united in communities, there is a new self-respect and attitude which may alter a lot which has been all but hopeless for 400 years.
