Caudillos del crimen : de la Guerra Fría a las narcoguerras

Image of item

Primera edición ; Edición en español ; Spanish language edition.

"In a ranch south of Texas, the man known as The Executioner dumps five hundred body parts in metal barrels. In Brazil's biggest city, a mysterious prisoner orders hit-men to gun down forty-one police officers and prison guards in two days. In southern Mexico, a meth maker is venerated as a saint while enforcing Old Testament justice on his enemies. A new kind of criminal kingpin has arisen: part CEO, part terrorist, and part rock star, unleashing guerrilla attacks, strong-arming governments, and taking over much of the world's trade in narcotics, guns, and humans. What they do affects you now--from the gas in your car, to the gold in your jewelry, to the tens of thousands of Latin Americans calling for refugee status in the U.S. Gangster Warlords is the first definitive account of the crime wars now wracking Central and South America and the Caribbean, regions largely abandoned by the U.S. after the Cold War. Author of the critically acclaimed El Narco, Ioan Grillo has covered Latin America since 2001 and gained access to every level of the cartel chain of command in what he calls the new battlefields of the Americas. Moving between militia-controlled ghettos and the halls of top policy-makers, Grillo provides a disturbing new understanding of a war that has spiraled out of control--one that people across the political spectrum need to confront now"--Provided by publisher.
En la ciudad más grande de Brasil, un misterioso prisionero le ordena a sicarios que ejecuten a cuarenta y un agentes de la policía y a guardias carcelarios en el lapso de dos días. En el sur de México, un fabricante de metanfetaminas es venerado como un santo mientras castiga a sus enemigos con la justicia del Antiguo Testamento. Esta obra es el primer relato definitivo de las guerras del crimen que avasallan a América Latina. Ioan Grillo ha cubierto la región desde 2001 y ha obtenido acceso a múltiples niveles de la cadena de mando de los cárteles en lo que él llama los nuevos campos de batalla de las Américas. Moviéndose entre guetos controlados por milicias y los despachos de los principales responsables de las políticas públicas, Grillo ofrece una nueva e inquietante visión de una guerra que está fuera de control y que sigue cobrando vidas diariamente.
