FOG OF WAR. CITIZENS FACING ORGANIZED CRIMINAL VIOLENCE

EN LA NIEBLA DE LA GUERRA. LOS CIUDADANOS ANTE LA VIOLENCIA CRIMINAL ORGANIZADA

This work offers the reader an accurate and clear study on the narcoviolence in Mexico. We are, according to the author, facing an economic civil war whose repercussions are terrifying: 95 thousand people murdered in the last fifteen years and more than 16 thousand unidentified bodies in mortuaries. Through statistical and political analysis of the country, Schedler shows us an x-ray of this problem.
