This book analyzes Mexicos transition from a relatively peaceful kleptocracy controlled by the Tammany-Hall style Institutional Revolutionary Party/PRI (1929–2000) to a country plagued by rural and urban enclaves of grotesque violence. The author examines the major drug cartels and their success in infiltrating American and Mexican businesses- details the response from the Obama administration- assesses the threat that the continuing bloodshed represents for the United States- and emphasizes the constraints on Americas ability to solve Mexicos crisis, despite U.S. contributions of intelligence, military equipment, training, and diplomatic support.
