"An impressive work of immense importance that sets a new standard for scholarship in this area."—Robert J. Bunker, Claremont Graduate University

"Comprehensive and wide-ranging.... This is a thoughtful, accessible, and informative account of the most important crime problems facing Mexico today."—Peter Andreas, Brown University


What kind of democracy will emerge in Mexico when the current levels of violence are brought under control? Will democratic reformers gain strength in the new equilibrium between government and criminal organizations? Or will corruption tilt the balance toward criminal interests? In the context of these questions, John Bailey explores the "security trap" in which Mexico is currently caught—where the dynamics of crime, violence, and corruption conspire to override efforts to put the country on a path toward democratic governance.


John Bailey is emeritus professor of government and foreign service at Georgetown University. His most recent books include Public Security and Police Reform in the Americas and Transnational Crime and Public Security: Challenges for Mexico and the United States.


  1. Security Traps and Mexico's Democracy.
  2. Foundational Crime: Tax Evasion and Informality.

  4. Organized Crime: Theory and Applications to Kidnapping.
  5. Drug Trafficking Organizations and Democratic Governance.

A War that Can't Be Won Binational Perspectives on the War on Drugs

Edited by Tony Payan; Kathleen Staudt; Z. Anthony Kruszewski

360 pp. / 6.00 x 9.00 / 2013

More than forty years have passed since President Richard Nixon described illegal drugs as "public enemy number one" and declared a "War on Drugs." Recently the United Nations Global Commission on 

Some of the best US and Mexican border scholars sit down and apply what they know about the transborder relationship as it relates to narco-trafficking in and from Mexico. They ask what can be done and realize the war, as conceived, cannot be won. A worthy read for all interested in the topic. 

—D. Rick Van Schoik, Director of the North American Center for Transborder Studies at Arizona State University

Drug Policy declared that "the global war on drugs has failed with devastating consequences for individuals and societies around the world." Arguably, no other country has suffered as much from the War on Drugs as Mexico. From 2006 to 2012 alone, at least sixty thousand people have died. Some experts have said that the actual number is more than one hundred thousand. Because the war was conceived and structured by US policymakers and officials, many commentators believe that the United States is deeply implicated in the bloodshed.

A War that Can't Be Won is the first book to include contributions from scholars on both sides of the US–Mexico border. It provides a unique breadth of perspective on the many dimensions of the societal crisis that affects residents of both nations—particularly those who live and work in the borderlands. It also proposes practical steps toward solving a crisis that shows no signs of abating under current policies. Each chapter is based on well-documented data, including previously unavailable evidence that was obtained through freedom-of-information inquiries in Mexico. By bringing together views from both sides of the border, as well as from various academic disciplines, this volume offers a much wider view of a complex problem—and possible solutions. 


Ricardo Ainslie’s book from last April

The Fight to Save Juárez: Life in the Heart of Mexico's Drug War

By Ricardo C. Ainslie

Presenting a range of viewpoints that spans from high-level Mexican and U.S. officials to ordinary narcos and family members of victims, this portrait of Mexico’s bloodiest city offers a gripping, firsthand perspective on the drug war that has claimed close to 60,000 lives since 2007

The city of Juárez is ground zero for the drug war that is raging across Mexico and has claimed close to 60,000 lives since 2007. Almost a quarter of the federal forces that former President Felipe Calderón deployed in the war were sent to Juárez, and nearly 20 percent of the country’s drug-related executions have taken place in the city, a city that can be as unforgiving as the hardest places on earth. It is here that the Mexican government came to turn the tide. Whatever happens in Juárez will have lasting repercussions for both Mexico and the United States.

Ricardo Ainslie went to Juárez to try to understand what was taking place behind the headlines of cartel executions and other acts of horrific brutality. In The Fight to Save Juárez, he takes us into the heart of Mexico’s bloodiest city through the lives of four people who experienced the drug war from very different perspectives—Mayor José Reyes Ferriz, a mid-level cartel player’s mistress, a human rights activist, and a photojournalist. Ainslie also interviewed top Mexican government strategists, including members of Calderón’s security cabinet, as well as individuals within U.S. law enforcement. The dual perspective of life on the ground in the drug war and the “big picture” views of officials who are responsible for the war’s strategy, creates a powerful, intimate portrait of an embattled city, its people, and the efforts to rescue Juárez from the abyss.

"An example of academic cooperation that can serve as a model for the bilateral relationship. Highly recommended."—Choice

"The historically grounded perspectives in this book can serve as important correctives to ephemeral news reports and commentary, pointing to the factors that will truly shape outcomes in Mexico and its relations with the United States."—Shannon K. O'Neil, Foreign Affairs

"Impressive in both research and writing, this volume cogently presents the key issues in the US-Mexico bilateral relationship."—Clint E. Smith, Stanford University

"A useful, timely volume on one of the United States' most crucial relationships."—Chappell Lawson, Massachusetts Institute of Technology


What are the strengths and weaknesses of the partnership between Mexico and the United States? What might be done to improve it? Exploring both policy and process, and ranging from issues of trade and development to concerns about migration, the environment, and crime, the authors of Mexico and the United States provide a comprehensive analysis of one of the world’s most complex bilateral relationships.
