Summary
"From the paramilitary invasion of Medellin in Colombia, the booming wealth of crack dealers in Managua, Nicaragua and police corruption in Mexico City, to the glimmers of hope in Lima, this book provides a dynamic analysis of urban insecurity. Based on new empirical evidence, interviews with local people and historical contextualization, the authors attempt to shed light on the faultlines which have appeared in Latin American society."--BOOK JACKET
