She has been defying the tradition of impunity for some years now, and demonstrating that communication media may not be so. This new book culminates her years of work on denouncing the systematic sexual violations of children and women, and the prostitution of children and women that constitutes the most lucrative form of slavery in our time, although it's not acknowledged that way. And Lydia goes beyond the frontiers of Mexico. Disguised with different attires, she travels from the Mexican undergrounds of the Merced market up to the Japanese night centers and brothels, going by many other knots of the immense spider's web of the Mafiosi, businessmen, policemen, judges and politicians that manipulate the global business. These are not neutral pages. Lydia listens, for them to be listened, to the voices of the victims, the broken lives, and accuses those who exercise the most abject form of property right, men who own women, adults who own children: those super machos manifest their despicable power by humiliating the weakest. Eduardo Galeano. Lydia Cacho es un simbolo del periodismo valiente. Ella lleva ya unos cuantos anos desafiando la tradicion de impunidad y demostrando que los medios de comunicacion pueden no ser miedos de comunicacion. Este nuevo libro culmina sus anos de trabajo en la denuncia de las sistematicas violaciones sexuales de ninos y mujeres, y de la prostitucion de ninos y mujeres que constituye la mas lucrativa esclavitud de nuestro tiempo, aunque no se llame asi. Y Lydia llega mas alla de las fronteras de Mexico. Ataviada con disfraces diversos, viaja desde los bajos fondos mexicanos de la Merced hasta los centros nocturnos y los prostibulos de Japon, pasando por muchos otros nudos de la inmensa telarana de mafiosos, empresarios, policias, jueces y politicos que manejan el negocio en el mundo.Read Less
