Reviews of Murder City: Ciudad Juarez and the Global Economy's New Killing Fields

Overall customer rating: 5.000

intense gritty truth

by artqueen on Jan 27, 2011

This book looks at how the world at large interplays with the drug and murder problem plaguing Ciudad Juarez. It is often an upsetting read but will provide you with more well researched truth about the world's interconnectedness/contributions to this problem then you want to believe. Incredible, poetic (excuse the cliche) painful prose.
