Reviews

"An ambitious and daring sketch of the political nexus that ensures the Mexican system of narcotics delivery to the U.S." - LA Times "A definitive work on Cartel history." - Pop Matters "Narcoland, with its explosive descriptions of decades of corruption permeating the upper echelons of government, leaves an extremely bad taste in the reader's mouth about the state of Mexico's perennially corrupt institutions - and begs the question: how much has changed? For Narcoland, Anabel Hernandez spent five years combing police, court and US papers, securing access to informers and sources and pursuing often fruitless requests for official files. The result is a searing indictment of a war on drugs." - Financial Times "Anabel Hernandez exposes the most murderous drug organization in Mexico, the Mexican government. Of course, this level of corruption is only possible thanks to the moral and financial support of the leaders in Washington." - Charles Bowden, author of "Murder City: Ciudad Juarez and the Global Economy's New Killing Fields" "What I appreciate in Anabel is not only her courage, it is her overall view that is so rare to find. In a country like Mexico, which has a deeply compromised democracy, the strength of reporters who assess these important issues is ultimately their attempt to save their democracy. While nailing politicians to their responsibilities, Anabel transforms her pages into an instrument for readers, an instrument of democracy." - from the Foreword by Roberto Saviano, author of "Gomorrah" "Hernandez's investigation into corruption ... traces the collusion of government, law enforcement, and military figures with the narcos back at least to the 1970s ... Her book has sold over 170,000 copies in Mexico and she now lives protected by bodyguards." - Enrique Krauze, author of "Mexico: Biography of Power, in "The New York Review of Books"
