"Violence on the U.S. - Mexico border: An examination of the Causes"

Abstract:  More than 100,000 people have died in drug-related violence in Mexico over the last ten years. Sixty thousand are missing and presumed dead. What accounts for the extreme violence that has afflicted Mexico in recent years? Professor Campbell's book, Juárez Underworlds, examines the roots of violence in one of the world’s most dangerous cities. Based on research conducted over a thirty-year period in Juárez, particularly in the crime-ridden downtown barrios and vice district, He focuses on explaining the causes of the violence that has rocked Mexico and the U.S.-Mexico border.
