Gangster Warlords: Drug Dollars, Killing Fields and the New Politics of Latin America

now in paperback

On a ranch south of Texas, the man known as The Executioner leaves five hundred body parts in metal barrels. In Brazil’s biggest city, a mysterious prisoner orders hit men to gun down forty-one police officers and prison guards in two days. In southwest Mexico, a meth maker is venerated as a saint while enforcing Old Testament justice on his enemies.

A new kind of criminal kingpin has arisen: a hybrid of CEO, terrorist, and rock star, commanding guerilla attacks, strong-arming governments, and taking over much of the world’s trade in narcotics, guns, and humans. Gangster Warlords is the first definitive account of the crime wars unleashing a humanitarian disaster in Central and South America and the Caribbean, regions largely abandoned by the U.S. after the Cold War. Author of the critically acclaimed El Narco, Ioan Grillo has covered Latin America since 2001 and gained access up the cartel chain of command in what he calls the new battlefields of the Americas. Moving between militia-controlled ghettos and the halls of top policy makers, Grillo provides a disturbing new understanding of a war that has spiraled out of control—and needs to be confronted now.
