9780099546566: Amexica: War Along the Borderline

In the last three years more than 38,000 people have been murdered in Amexica - the area of land that forms the border between the US and Mexico. This is both the busiest and most deadly frontier in the world, studded with guard-posts, infra-red searchlights and heavily armed patrols.Across it unfolds a war that is scarcely reported - a war that's being fought, with thousands dying and millions of lives blighted, so that Europe and America can get high.

In Amexica, acclaimed journalist Ed Vulliamy explores his own love-hate relationship with the place and its people, while investigating the causes and consequences of the war and its impact on the everyday life which somehow carries on around it.

Review:

"Previously, to understand the ruthlessness, ambition and impact of today's global criminals, you needed to read Roberto Saviano's Gomorrah and Misha Glenny's McMafia. Now, you also need to read Vulliamy's Amexica" (Brian Schofield Sunday Times)

"The most vivid book published so far in English on the bloody calamity that has been visited on Mexico's northern borderlands... This is a fascinating introduction to the bloody last act of the 'war on drugs'" ( Observer)

"Vulliamy writes like a latter-day Graham Greene... Like all good travel writing, Amexica is vivid, colorful and exotic, filled with striking vignettes and larger-than-life characters" ( New York Times)

"This absorbing odyssey along the Mexican-American border gives pause for thought to anyone who ignores the side-effects of cocaine... Vulliamy's reporting is faultlessly brave... The scenery and characters he meets are brought alive with vividness and intensity" ( Daily Telegraph)

"Vivid social reportage... An extraordinarily powerful work" ( Spectator)

Book Description:

The harrowing story of the extraordinary terror unfolding along the US-Mexico border - this is the secret war of drugs, gangs and guns that is destroying thousands of lives.
