L'état narco : néolibéralisme et crime organisé au Mexique
This work studies the emergence in Mexico of a new form of peripheral capitalist State : the Narco-State, whose external manifestation is that of a technocratic neoliberal political regime with a strong presence of the representatives of organized crime in its various Governments as well as in the economy and in finance. This phenomenon is part of the current crisis of global capitalism, taking the form, in the case of Mexican society, of a major organic crisis consisting of a deficit of rationality (three decades without economic growth) and a deficit of institutional legitimacy. This has resulted in social violence and public insecurity at unprecedented levels in contemporary Mexico?s history and in a growing militarization of the State apparatus, engaged in a failed war against drug trafficking.
