Book Overview

The Mexican drug trade has inspired prejudiced narratives of a war between north and south, white and brown, between noble cops and vicious kingpins, corrupt politicians and powerful cartels. In The Dope, Benjamin T. Smith draws on unprecedented archival research; leaked DEA, Mexican law enforcement, and cartel documents; and dozens of harrowing interviews to tell the real story of how and why this one-peaceful industry turned violent, interrogate the US-backed policies that inflamed the carnage, and explore corruption on both sides of the border.

Vivid characters--from Ignacia La Nacha Jasso, queen-pin of Juarez, to Harry Anslinger, founder of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics--propel this thrilling history, which reveals the human cost of the trade. A dark morality tale about the American hunger for intoxication and the necessities of human survival, The Dope is essential for understanding drug war violence and how decades-old myths shape Mexico in the American imagination today.
