Amexica is the harrowing story of the extraordinary terror unfolding along the U.S.-Mexico border--qa country in its own right, which belongs to both the United States and Mexico, yet neitherq--as the narco-war escalates to a fever pitch there. In 2009, after reporting from the border for many years, Ed Vulliamy traveled the frontier from the Pacific coast to the Gulf of Mexico, from Tijuana to Matamoros, a journey through a kaleidoscopic landscape of corruption and all-out civil war, but also of beauty and joy and resilience.
