Description: The product of five years' investigative reporting, the subject of intense national controversy,and the source of death threats that forced the National Human Rights Commission to assigntwo full-time bodyguards to its author, Anabel Hernández, Narcoland has been a publishingand political sensation in Mexico.The definitive history of the drug cartels, Narcoland takes readers to the front lines of the"war on drugs," which has so far cost more than 60,000 lives in just six years. Hernández explainsin riveting detail how Mexico became a base for the mega-cartels of Latin America and one of themost violent places on the planet. At every turn, Hernández names names--not just the narcos,but also the politicians, functionaries, judges and entrepreneurs who have collaborated with them.In doing so, she reveals the mind-boggling depth of corruption in Mexico's governmentand business elite.Hernández became a journalist after her father was kidnapped and killed and the police refusedto investigate without a bribe. She gained national prominence in 2001 with her exposureof excess and misconduct at the presidential palace, and previous books have focused oncriminality at the summit of power, under presidents Vicente Fox and Felipe Calderón.In awarding Hernández the 2012 Golden Pen of Freedom, the World Association of Newspapersand News Publishers noted, "Mexico has become one of the most dangerous countries in theworld for journalists, with violence and impunity remaining major challenges in terms of pressfreedom. In making this award, we recognize the strong stance Ms. Hernández has taken, at greatpersonal risk, against drug cartels."From the Hardcover edition.
