Amexica: War Along the Borderline

by Ed Vulliamy - £10.99  Vintage Publishing (2020)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781529113662 | ISBN 10: 1529113660

Between the interiors of the USA and Mexico lies a borderland: Amexica. A terrain astride the world's busiest frontier, teeming with migrants, factory workers, narcos, tourists, heroines and heroes, ranchers and rogues. A border both porous and harsh, criss-crossed by a million people every day.
 
A warzone, where a grotesque pastiche of the globalised economy plays out in a tragedy of unfathomable violence as drug cartels and state forces face off. Amexica is a journey through the cartels' reach into the borderland's daily life: through migrant camps, drug-smuggling 'plazas', rehab centres, sweatshop factories and the mass-murder of women.
 
Updated with new material ten years on it paints an essential portrait of a country under siege - and testament to people who carry on regardless.
