In his new book, Ferreyra (California State Univ., Los Angeles) argues that drug trafficking is a complex, multidimensional phenomenon that intersects every aspect of society. Ferreyra contends that before assaying to solve the issue, scholars must first understand the problem posed by such illicit activity (while also remarking that scholarly treatments have often marginalized the multidimensionality involved). . . He highlights the complex relationships between producers, distributors, and consumers in his quest to identify the structural forces that create the necessary space for drug trafficking to continue thriving despite attempts of both Mexican and US government authorities to eliminate such nefarious activity. The text visits topics such as narcoculture (chapter 3), the most nefarious outcomes of drug trafficking in Mexico, and the sometimes destructive role of the Drug Enforcement Administration in developing drug policy (chapter 6). The final chapter offers suggestions such as decriminalization and legalization, also welcoming the fact that some sectors of US society and the world are embracing forward-thinking policies to move beyond prohibition. Summing Up: Recommended. All readers.
