Read from April 13 to 15, 2012

Looking past the occasionally breathless prose, British-born Ioan Grillo has done an incredible job in this book. He has synthesized traditional interviews, academic research, pop culture and WikiLeaks to create a powerful and alarming picture of the cartels of Mexico. He does an admirable job of explaining the root causes of the resurgence of these criminal networks that threaten Mexican civil society and have potential to be a disruptive force across the American continent and perhaps globally.
