Promotional Information

Nathan P. Jones's study of drug trafficking networks in Mexico provides a rich history and insightful analysis of drug trafficking and counter-drug efforts in the Mexican context. Jones examines many of the contemporary questions and debates about how organized crime works and how to combat it, and in so doing brings much needed practical analysis of one of the most urgent challenges facing Mexico and much of Latin America today. -- David Shirk, Associate Professor, Political Science, University of San Diego Nathan P. Jones's deep dive into Mexico's organized criminal networks-particularly the Tijuana Cartel-is groundbreaking. It gives us a deeper understanding of both crime structures and state responses to them, as they relate to 'transactional' and 'territorial' organizations. As such, Jones' book helps us turn an important academic, conceptual corner. His book will be a tremendous resource for years to come for those of us who struggle to understand why some criminal groups survive and other dissolve. -- Steven Dudley, Co-Director, InSightCrime This innovative book makes important theoretical contributions by contrasting drug-trafficking and territorial criminal networks as ideal types and exploring their patterns of interaction with states and civil societies. The middle-range theorizing, backed with solid empirical work, sets out a path to follow to bring the problem of criminality into the mainstream work on quality of democracy in the region. -- John Bailey, Professor Emeritus, Georgetown University Nathan P. Jones shows that drug cartels and illicit networks can organize as territorial or transactional actors. This distinction will facilitate analysis of organized crime and the threat it poses to states for years to come. -- John Sullivan, Senior Fellow, Small Wars Journal-El Centro

The author is certainly well positioned to discuss this subject matter and has proven his expertise through his research and analysis. This is an excellent book that addresses how drug networks are targeted through the prism of the state. * Small Wars Journal *
