Description

This splendid edited volume contributes to the growing literature on criminal politics in Latin America. The book opens by offering conceptual and theoretical insights on how to study relations between states and organized crime. The subsequent empirical chapters illustrate and amend these insights while highlighting areas in need of future research. With impressive empirical breadth, including the nexus between the drug trade and post-conflict politics in Colombia, the role of the Venezuelan state in shaping organized crime, and the unintended consequences of state responses to Central America's gangs, this comprehensive and informative book will be of great interest to both scholars and policymakers.--Eduardo Moncada, Columbia University
