Narcoland: The Mexican Drug Lords and Their Godfathers by Anabel Hernandez
The explosive, bestselling account of Mexico's drug cartels and the corruption rife in Mexico
The definitive history of the drug cartels, Narcoland takes readers to the front lines of the 'war on drugs,' which has so far cost more than 60,000 lives in just six years. Hernandez explains in riveting detail how Mexico became a base for the mega- cartels of Latin America and one of the most violent places on the planet. At every turn, Hernandez names names - not just the narcos, but the politicians, functionaries, judges and entrepreneurs who have collaborated with them. In doing so, she reveals the mind-boggling depth of corruption in Mexico's government and business elite.
'A searing indictment of a war on drugs she believes was a sham from the start.' Financial Times
