Historia del narcotráfico en México

Un análisis implacable y excelentemente documentado sobre los orígenes y alcances del narcotráfico en México, escrito por una de las voces más autorizadas en temas de crimen organizado, narcotráfico y política mexicana.

El problema del narcotráfico en México ha alcanzado niveles insospechados debido a los acuerdos siniestros entre los líderes de los cárteles y los cuerpos policiacos, por los angeles complicidad con algunos miembros del gobierno y las negociaciones establecidas por los narcos con militares y cuerpos de seguridad.

El alto posicionamiento de los narcotraficantes resulta impactante y digno de un análisis cuidadoso. Guillermo Valdés lo ofrece en estas páginas de manera puntual y objetiva; elabora un recuento de sus protagonistas y los mecanismos que emplearon para alcanzar l. a. cima en el negocio de los estupefacientes. Habla de grupos que ganan terreno cada día por medio del crimen, el asesinato y el comercio voraz, así como las prácticas utilizadas para fortalecer sus bandos e imponer su ley.

Guillermo Valdés, titular del Centro de Investigación y Seguridad Nacional (CISEN) durante el gobierno de Felipe Calderón, en una de las etapas más críticas del enfrentamiento entre el Estado y los narcotraficantes, elabora una radiografía insuperable de este fenómeno social que fractura el orden social de nuestro país. Basado en un trabajo de campo agitadísimo, caracterizado por una delicada toma de decisiones, así como en años de investigación sobre problemas sociales de México, seguridad nacional y ejercicio del poder, el autor analiza las primeras expresiones del narcotráfico en nuestro país durante las décadas de los años veinte a los cuarenta del siglo pasado, el auge y l. a. consolidación monopólica de 1940 a 1980, las fragmentaciones y rupturas durante los últimos años del siglo XX y los angeles guerra franca del gobierno mexicano contra el narco en el presente siglo.

Meticuloso y revelador, Guillermo Valdés detalla las acciones de los narcotraficantes y sus alcances en cuanto a ganancias, territorio y formas de operar; repasa el origen del comercio de drogas y las estrategias de sus actores esenciales: desde Caro Quintero, Ernesto Fonseca: "Don Neto" y Félix Gallardo, hasta "El Mayo" Zambada, los Beltrán Leyva, Amado Carrillo: "El señor de los Cielos", Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, los Arellano Félix y Héctor "El Güero" Palma, entre muchos otros personajes que, en complicidad con comandantes de los angeles policía, agentes ministeriales, representantes del ejército y políticos, han conformado un grupo de poder sin precedentes.

Historia del narcotráfico en México es, sin duda, l. a. investigación más importante sobre los angeles guerra contra el narco y sus protagonistas, además, un documento esclarecedor, objetivo y sincero, escrito desde lo más profundo de los angeles problemática y con necesidad de contar los angeles verdad, aunque sea dolorosa.
