Votes, Drugs, and Violence: The Political Logic of Criminal Wars in Mexico

Why did Mexico become so violent as the country transitioned from authoritarian rule to democracy? This episode is from the English-language book launch of "Votes, Drugs, and Violence: The Political Logic of Criminal Wars in Mexico" (Cambridge University Press, 2020) by Guillermo Trejo (University of Notre Dame) and Sandra Ley Gutierrez (Centro de Investigación y Docencia Económicas). In a conversation moderated by Aníbal Pérez-Liñan (Notre Dame) the episode includes brief presentations by the authors, followed by commentary from Discussants Ana Arjona (Northwestern University) and Gustavo Flores-Macías (Cornell University) and question/answer period from the live audience.
