If you're expecting an academic study you should look elsewhere.

The 'war on drugs' started by felipe calderón, with the blessing of the US government has caused over 30,000 deaths in 4 years and not a lot of progress has been made. No wonder, considering the fact that there is nothing else on the table other than military action --- no education campaigns, no prevention, and of course, not a 'legalization' option.

Should we be waging war against 'drugs' when for example, the US, one of the biggest consumers in the world, has made medical marijuana, legal in 14 states? Why do people end up in drug trafficking? Who are these 'cartels'? Are the spontaneous organizations? Can they be stopped by killing their 'leaders'?

That's what Diego Osorno asks us to think about. He tells a story of human beings that find themselves in different situations -- his interviewees tell stories of corruption, opportunism and hypocrisy. He gives voice to people who are usually simply outcasts. Do we not care to understand where and how people end up where they do?

This book is a very personal account of a man's experience in understanding a phenomenon that has touched his life and that of many others.. I don't think, like other reviewers do, that this man is claiming to be unbiased. He is clearly questioning in this book, and always does in his articles, the strategy followed by the government, in contrast with the causes and context of drug trafficking and its history in Sinaloa.

Someone mentioned you would expect quotes or data... which I found in this book, so I'm not sure what they are reading.

I really enjoyed the reading. It is a better source of critical thinking on drugs in Mexico than most of the book that are now circulating in English.

I read this book, right after reading "The Last Narco", and even when it's not a great narrative (more like a compilation of files and irrelevant facts in the first chapters), it gets better in the later chapters. I do believe though, that it should have focused much more on the modern days of the Sinaloa Cartel , cause it rarely mentions the Beltran Leyva, Nacho Coronel, and other important people in this cartel.

Muy interesante y Verdadero
Al parecer el escritor no tuvo ni un tipo de censura
Ve directo al tema sin salirse por la tangente
