Author Sylvia Longmire’s Book, “Cartel: The Coming Invasion of Mexico’s Drug War”, will be released on September 27, 2011. She was kind enough to have her publisher, Palgrave Macmillan, send us an advance galley of her book for our review.
Given the amount of time I spend maintaining this site plus being active in supporting Hoosier representatives and senators in their efforts to address ILLEGAL immigration, it is rare that I find a book in print that can maintain my interest. Longmire’s book is one of those “can’t put it down” books.
To me this book is many things. I see it as a crime story, a chronicle of U.S. – Mexican relations, a report on the dangers of the Narco-Terrorist cartels to the American Heartland, a study in crime economics, a law enforcement handbook on drugs, terrorism, human trafficking and transnational criminal organizations.
Longmire incorporates history and events so current that they have been covered here on OOV in the last several months!
To understand ILLEGAL immigration, the mechanics and the economics of it, this book is a MUST READ!
If you are a law enforcement officer anywhere in America, this book is a MUST READ!
If you are a community activist, this book is a MUST READ!
Longmire’s book should be MANDATORY reading for every law enforcement officer in America. Every police academy should make it required reading.
In fact I am going to recommend it to my contacts at DHS and at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center at Glynco, Georgia.
This book contains MUST HAVE, MUST KNOW, information for us to combat the scourge of drugs and human tr4afficking. Nothing less than the future of America is at stake.
