Item description for Herencia Maldita (Spanish Edition) by Ricardo Ravelo...
Cursed Inheritance is an exact and detailed portrayal of drug trafficking, the most serious challenge currently faced by Mexico. The drug cartels have the nation in their grip and their interests span a wide variety of social and governmental areas, seriously affecting public life across the country as well as the personal lives of millions of Mexicans. Experienced journalist Ricardo Ravelo, author of titles like Los capos and Los narcoabogados, reveals this terrible contemporary reality: the drug cartels have gained access to the government as much as politicians have gained access to the cartels, and the borders between political power and crime are slowly corroding. The combination of private interests, mutual protection, complicity, extortion, and corruption that so damage Mexico has given rise to a nefarious and highly dangerous offshoot: police cartels. The institutions that should provide security have become criminal accomplices. "The government of change," led by Vicente Fox, promised to solve this painful situation and only managed to perpetuate it, says Ravelo. Fox, in turn, passed this explosive problem on to Felipe Caldern. The drug cartels have never been this powerful or acted with such impunity. Drug trafficking is, without a doubt, the Mexican government's greatest challenge and the actions it decides to take will decide the future of the nation. Cursed Inheritance reveals the new map of drug cartels in Mexico and anticipates an uncertain future.
