    In this book, Ricardo C Ainslie takes a grim but refreshingly unsensationalized look at the drug war during the mayoralty of Jos Reyes Ferriz in Ciudad Juarez Reyes Ferriz was mayor of the city during some of its bloodiest years, as the Juarez and Sinaloa cartels fought for turf, assassinating police and each other, and massacring clients of drug rehabilitation clinics Ainslie clearly sympathizes with Reyes Ferriz, who he sees as a mix of idealism and realism Not only was he confronted with warring cartels who controlled leadership of his police force, but he had to work with a Governor of his own Party of the Institutional Revolution who offered him little support and a President of a different party who offered him social services that were easy to publicize and difficult to deliver and the presence of federal security forces, less corrupt but with a ruthlessness all their own But Ainslie is not only interested in the political forces that clash over how to help Juarez survive he has a gift for finding people who will talk to him, whether the families of innocent young people killed by an error of the cartel hitmen, or even a woman who operates on the fringe of the cartel He also has a fine understanding of the roots of the crisis, how some of the ex policemen in the cartels arose out of the anti leftist campaigns of the latter part of the last century and how the endemic poverty and despair of young people makes them easy recruits Juarez has reportedly become peaceful in recent years, largely because Sinaloa won but also because the scale of violence depleted the ranks of the organizations The jailing, escape and extradition of Chapo Guzman likely also required a lot of attention from the powerful group The good news may be about to end the newspaper El Norte de Ciudad Juarez has ceased publication because of the violence and there are reports of a Sinaloa splinter, the New Generation Jalisco Cartel, allying with Juarez Ainslie s book provides no answers, except to point out some of the mistakes from the height of the violence, such as failing to address the economic malaise and the lack of opportunity for young men, failing to provide social services until too many people die, and then providing them only in a highly publicized but poorly coordinated and implemented way, not finding a way to fight the cartels and respect human rights, and the inability of local, state and federal politicians to find a way to work together Ainslie is silent on Juarez biggest mistake, but the one that is the inescapable if unexpressed conclusion of everything written about its travails, which is to locate itself across the border from a gargantuan economy that has failed to address its own issues with lack of opportunity and addiction.
