The harrowing story of the extraordinary terror unfolding along the US-Mexico border - this is the secret war of drugs, gangs and guns that is destroying thousands of lives.
Ed Vulliamy is a journalist and writes for the Guardian and Observer. For his work in Bosnia, Italy, the US and Iraq he has won a James Cameron Award and an Amnesty International Media Award and has been named International Reporter of the Year (twice) and runner-up at the Foreign Press Association Awards. In 1996 he became the first journalist to ever testify at an international crimes court, at the International Criminal Tribunal for former Yugoslavia. A believer in the duty of journalists to testify in matters of humanitarian law, he has since lectured extensively on the subject. Twitter: @edvilliamy.com
"Previously, to understand the ruthlessness, ambition and impact of today's global criminals, you needed to read Roberto Saviano's Gomorrah and Misha Glenny's McMafia. Now, you also need to read Vulliamy's Amexica" -- Brian Schofield * Sunday Times * "The most vivid book published so far in English on the bloody calamity that has been visited on Mexico's northern borderlands... This is a fascinating introduction to the bloody last act of the 'war on drugs'" * Observer * "Vulliamy writes like a latter-day Graham Greene... Like all good travel writing, Amexica is vivid, colorful and exotic, filled with striking vignettes and larger-than-life characters" * New York Times * "This absorbing odyssey along the Mexican-American border gives pause for thought to anyone who ignores the side-effects of cocaine... Vulliamy's reporting is faultlessly brave... The scenery and characters he meets are brought alive with vividness and intensity" * Daily Telegraph * "Vivid social reportage... An extraordinarily powerful work" * Spectator *
