Ce you name it and rarely attempts to analyse anything from it Makes me think somewhat of the crap I produced at university aged 20Also seriously having lived in Mexico in 20034 I feel I know about the country and the national psyche than he oes erroneously or not and certainly GameMaker Essentials did not recognise the country or the people I fell in love with granted I was in Puebla but Iidn t think it was as simple as he put it All in all a really average misguided book I hope people take it with a pinch of salt because it s badly researched or really only insofar as it serves its own ends and is riddled with mistakes Picking up Amexica War Along the Borderline by journalist Ed Vulliamy I was initially excited thinking here Might Be An Accessible Book By A be an accessible book by a journalist capable of explaining "to the English speaking public just what is going on in Mexico and why Na ve I know My " the English speaking public just what is going on in Mexico and why Na ve I know My were raised as early as the second paragraph when the author mistranslated the extremely common Spanish language sign off Atte as Look out Atte is actually an abbreviation of Atentamente simply meaning Sincerely Get something that basic that wrong that early in the book and I knew I was in for a ride Singing the Kyrgyz Manas downhillIn short Amexica is part travelogue part sympathetic recounting of theevastation of the militarization of the war on Witch Way to Murder drugs and part look at whataring stuff this white guy Before The Legend did Vulliamy gets some things right pointing out the fact that therug trade is just another form of transnational capitalism examining the US role in arming the cartels and laundering their money Pagan Babies describing the toll neoliberalism has taken on Mexico in terms of migration and mauiladoras and putting names and faces on some the 35000ead in Felipe Calder n s The Joy of Work disastrous so called fight against organized crime The main problem is that all of this is carried out superficially and with a lack of historical context and political analysis along with omissions and errors As such if you want to know how things are right now in the borderlands reading this book might be somewhat useful If you want to know why things are they way they are right now this book will not help youIn glossing over the past to get to the juicy bloody present Vulliamyoes his readers a Best Practices disservice There is noiscussion of how the war on The Real Truth about Success drugs as a concept emerged in the Nixon era andeveloped as a strategy of population containment and oppression a politically expedient and enormously profitable endeavor that since 2001 has coalesced well with the rhetoric of the war on terror and Bush and Obama s war on migrants The end of 70 years of PRI rule in Mexico on the federal level The IKEA Edge dismantling the pre existing arrangements with therug cartels just as they were getting powerful Splish, Splash! due to the collapse of the Colombian cartels goes nearly unexamined Similarly ignored is the role that Calder n s legitimacy played in the launching of a military offensive inside of Mexico As he fraudulently arrived at the presidency therug war was a means of instilling his regime with legitimacy Scant attention is paid to the M rida Initiative the US s billion Simple Italian Snacks dollar military aid package to Mexico nor to how the same police and military forces receiving the aid and executing therug war are also involved in large scale human rights violations massive corruption and the severe repression of Mexico s social movements all with impunity Linking these factors to the current events that this book covers is essential for any understanding of the situationAdding to the contextual shortcomings of the book are the various errors and poor translations It s stunning his editors either in the UK or US Biscuit Meets the Class Pet did not hire a translator to verify his Spanish or at least open a Spanish Englishictionary Some of the humorous examples He translates gabacho as someone from Europe and gringo as someone from the US Both mean someone from the US Vulliamy would simply be a g ero and translating fresa in reference to someone who Werewolf Smackdown (Felix Gomez, dresses or acts bourgeois literally as strawberry Regarding the facts some examples of errors The claim that Carlos Salinas privatized communally held land in the 1980s He only arrived at the presidency in December of 1988 privatizationid not begin until after the 1992 reform of Article 27 of the Mexican Constitution in preparation for NAFTA Vulliamy s statement that the Arrellano F lix Organization intentionally killed Cardinal Posadas Ocampo in 1993 in order to target the Catholic Church Initial investigations showed they confused Posadas convoy with that of a rival cartel leader More recent investigations indicate the assassination was likely state sponsored Or also his writing that the only investigation of its kind into Los Zetas penetration into Monterrey was carried out by a Los Angeles Times reporter ignoring those My Jesus Year done by Mexican journalists or Kristin Bricker for Narco NewsIn sum Vulliamy s book leaves much to beesired and that which is present should be cautiously igested Even if it took a bit longer to put out a thoroughly considered and better edited version of this book would have made a much useful contribution to this politically manufactured crisis facing Mexico and increasingly the Der of young women in Ciudad Juarez Heroes villains and victims the brave and rogue police priests women and journalists fighting the violence; the gangs and their freelance killers; the ead and the evastated all come to life in this singular book Amexica takes us far beyond today’s headlines It is a street level portrait by turns horrific and sublime of a place and people in a time of war as much as of the war itsel. Amexica Author Ed VulliamyAuthor id a tremendous work to escribe every aspect this Violent And Unbelievably Cruel WarThe Numbers Of Victims Are Terrifying and unbelievably cruel warThe numbers of victims are terrifying whe on t know of this and unbelievably cruel warThe numbers of victims are terrifying and whe Poisonous Snakes don t know this conflict will finally endFor most of the people who lives among the cartels it s sead end they have no choice left they need to cooperate with Dirty Deeds (Mechanics of Love, drug traffickers Sad thing is that there is no hope for them corruption and bribery is on every level from police military administration to politicians But we can t blame only Mexicans guilty are also the Americans as a clients An excellent read Sometimes these kind of books can be a bit on thery side but Vulliamy Infinite Repeat (The Art of Lainey, does a great job of bringing to rawesperate life the people he talks to and the places he Chore Whore describes My interest in the whole War on Drugs subject had been sparked initially by reading Sam Hawken s The Dead Women of Juarez and then the magnificent The Power of the Dog by Don Winslow but this book shows that nothing in fiction is as shocking as the events that now pass foraily life in the north of Mexico Highly recommended A point in time review of events along the US Mexico border The Forgotten Man Graphic Edition during some of the worst of the narcotics related violence From the gruesome open warfare in Tijuana and Nuevo Laredo to the calm but chilling repression in Matamoros which has seen escalating violence since this was written Vulliamy sympathizes with the Mexican citizens who have gotten caught up in all the chaos The booketails the rise of the various cartels the various territorial fights that shift along the border and the enormous flow of The Female of the Species drugs heading north and guns and cash heading south Additionally he goes intoetail about the relationship between all the twinned cities on the border the violence against young women in Ciudad Juarez the challenges of the mauiladoras and other subjects Not exactly a fun read but very informative A literally shocking non fiction account of the Witch Week (Chrestomanci, drugs war raging on the Mexican American border and the breakdown of society that this is in turn promoting The book starts in a fairlyry way but soon becomes a gripping Memory Boot Camp dialogue for theead as the atrocities and breakdown of society are catalogued through accounts from not only the people trying to address the problems but also from the bereaved the addicted the London Calling detritus of this burnt out society that still functionsespite itself Soon enough it reads like the worst excesses of a James Ellroy or Don Winslow crimehorror novel all the gripping because you know it Fantastic book mostly about the Orchard Valley Grooms drug war raging on the US M xico border All aspects are covered including the army s and policy fight against and often complicit involvement with the narcos the war s effect on immigration the recent involvement of Native border tribes in the issue the complicity of the mauiladoras in providing the grounds for recruitment the complicity of the US in regards to easy availability of weapons the lack of interest in following the money etc The book treats the whole border and all the major narco factions from the East coast California all the way to the Gulf of M xico Texas The format consists of interviews by the author of a sample of people affected by each of these issues Most of all it shows the brutality of therug cartels and thereby the brutality with which the army has resorted to fighting themThe main thesis of the book which I think true but not uite as Croma Venture: The Spiral Wars, Book 5 defended as it should be is that therug war represents a foretaste to a post political globalized free market economy where multinational corporations such like the Rancher Daddy (Saddlers Prairie, drug cartels have become seek profit at any cost without regard for the conseuences to peopleA rather encouraging as well asespairing trend revealed in the book is the involvement of women and The Church in the fight against the The Tycoons Very Personal Assistant drug cartels Encouraging because in a society where the police willo nothing and in fact are often complicit with the One Girl One Dream drug cartels themselves to help the people they are meant to protect where the police and sometimes the army too are too scared to fight these criminals and with good reason people of good will the majority of which are womenisplaying that special genius of which John Paul II spoke and which was in full view at the Crucifixion of Jesus when all his Apostles scattered but the women remained and The Church are practically the only ones opposing the The Amazing SAS drug cartels speaking out against them organizing public protests trying to shame these bastards into acting humanely that is they are practically the only ones exemplifying theignity of the human person even in situations where such a concept appears to be folly and fairy tale like And yet the trend is The Conquerors Lady / The Mercenarys Bride / His Enemys Daughter despairing as well for anyone who speaks against the cartel be it priests police women politicians reporters army generals anyone ends upead usually in some grotesue way and very often cruelly tortured and raped before being killed Despair is indeed uite close by evil has won good is Broken Prophecy destroyed It takes soooooo much faith to believe that the example of humanignity The Dangerous Debutante (Romney Marsh, displayed by these people far outweighs spiritually the evil being perpetrated and that therefore good will be triumphant in this world oneay. Amexica is the harrowing story of the extraordinary terror unfolding along the US Mexico border “a country in its own right which belongs to both the United States and Mexico yet neither” as the narco war escalates to a fever pitch thereIn 2009 after reporting from the border for many years Ed Vulliamy traveled the frontier from the Pacific coast to the Gulf of Mexico from Tijuana to Matamoros a journey through a kal. But one ay seems so very far away when your children are being killedOverall I would recommend it all the clueless away when your children are being killedOverall I would recommend it to all the who o not see the connection between their The Wedding Challenge (The Matchmaker drug habit and the terrible harm they are causing As was put in the book anytime someone inhalesrugs they are inhaling human lives But I o not suppose those kind of people read books A well informed piece of traveloguereportage of the literally torturous history of the US Mexico border in the era of the War on Drugs It captures well the way in which the simple stories of opposition between Nefarious Drug Lords And Virtuous drug lords and virtuous government is blatant misrepresentation On the contrary there has long been a series of not very cozy condominia between various rug cartels and both local and national factions of the Mexican government The most important aspect of the book is it s unflinching examination of the symbolic and instrumental use of violence on the part of various factions in Mexico most obviously including the various kaleidoscope of mutating cartels but also encompassing the Mexican government s own response For those who have not followed events in Mexico closely the images will undoubtedly be shockingAs Vulliamy makes clear the brutalization of the war on Luke drugs is in fact a perverse reflex of theemocratization of Mexican politics so long as the PRI monopolized political power from 1917 until about 2000 The Hero Next Door (Lighthouse Lane drugealers knew who they had to pay off and territories were clearly A Bride For A Blue-Ribbon Cowboy defined which minimized the violent contestation of the plazas the staging areas for the transshipment ofrugs into the US With the break up of the PRI s political monopoly it has become unclear who should be bribed or who has the authority to The Witnesses (Lancaster Burning dictate territorial arrangements Likewise the increasing professionalization and fairness of the Mexican judiciary has ironically made it much harder to secure convictions forrug related crimes including murder which has increased the impunity with which crimes are committed Vulliamy also pays attention to the way in which US stances on rugs and related eviant activities have created the conditions for the brutalization in Mexico Not only is the US s insatiable emand for rugs to primary The Best Revenge (Redstone, Incorporated driver of therug economy but so is the US effort to crack Ranchers Perfect Baby Rescue down onomestic production of Silent Confessions drugs Likewise Vuillamy emphasizes the role of the iron river of guns flowing from the United States into Mexico in the growing violence in Mexico Noroes he shy away from the important role of racism in A Texas Holiday Miracle defining not only the US goals in the conflict but also theaily behavior of both policymakers and front line agents Moreover he wisely notes that just as the fragmentation of political authority in Mexico is a precondition for the violence in that country so is the fragmentation and competitiveness of 74 Seaside Avenue different US antidrug bureaucracies a key factor in the ineffective US government response to the challenges ofrug tradeVulliamy s narrative focus stays mostly on the front lines of the conflict the The Note drugealers the border agents the innocent and not so innocent bystanders He is less interested in the underlying economics of the narcotics industry For example he pays little attention to the central role of money laundering in the war on The Loving Gift drugs other than noting the DEA sisinterest in following the money which is not exactly accurate nor about the role of the US prison industrial complex nor about the bureaucratic incentives in favor of hardening and militarizing the campaign The result is a fascinating narrative with vivid characters that alas remains somewhat analytically incomplete In the end he The Wildcatter does not ask the most fundamental uestion whyoes this hopeless war continue Bear Claw Lawman (Bear Claw Creek Crime Lab, decade afterecade Perhaps because of his unrelenting focus on violence Vulliamy largely affirms the metaphor of war to Her Nine Month Confession describe the regulation of the transnationalrug economy Fantastic read and a really important book everybody should read it and be aware of the atrocities happening everyday in MexicoLove the very poignant closing line by Munoz the Tijuana pathologist I live like a man who sits eating a A Southern Reunion delicious taco on the street there aware that every moment could be his last One bullet and he isead This was my beach read for our Thanksgiving vacation to Florida I was so thoroughly engrossed I barely remember any Let It Go details from our holiday This fascinating angering and heartbreak So far my main goal is to try to get over how many spelling mistakes there are in the Spanish and focus on what Vulliamy is saying It isifficult given I am still only at the prologue and I ve tallied 14 mistakes so far which is frankly embarrassing for Vintage Hopefully it won t get worse though clearly it will and I will be able to get through Amexica without hurtling it across the room unfinished Here s to hopingOkso ages later I ve finished My verdict is that this book is little than poverty porn with a pathetic and ineffective attempt at analysis I was especially put off by the chapter talking about feminicide which Charade of Hearts did nothing than enumerate murders without trying to understand the phenomenon Vulliamy rattles off horrible incidents ofeath torture violen. Eidoscopic landscape of corruption and all out civil war but also of beauty and joy and resilience He The Yuletide Rescue (Alaskan Search and Rescue describes in revelatoryetail how the narco gangs work; the smuggling of people weapons and rugs back and forth across the border; middle class flight from Mexico and an American celebrity culture that is feeding the violence; the interrelated economies of rugs and the mauiladora factories; the ruthless systematic mur.
