Borderland Beat Book Review by Robert J Bunker

SWJ El Centro Book Review - Borderland Beat: Reporting on the Mexican Cartel Drug War
Book review by Robert J. Bunker
The Borderland Beat book focuses on more organized narco violence taking place in Mexico during the 2008 through 2013 era before the later cartel fragmentation due to kingpin targeting—when Alex Marentes was more directly involved with the blog. It draws its material via the site’s blog posts and the author’s professional (rather than academic) directed research. The book's cover is Mexican skull art based with elements of violence—bullet rounds, revolvers, barbed wire, pills, fire, and brass knuckles—combined together to create a narcocultura inspired skull.
