Reviews

This is a brilliant study on the complex articulation between the metropolitan police forces and the general public in Mexico City. It is rich in conceptualization, provides overwhelming empirical support and is eloquently written. I have no doubt about the character of this fine publication: It will be a modern classic in the field of public security and urban violence in Latin America. Highly recommended.
