Weapons, Drugs, and Money is a creative non-fiction political economy and geopolitics textbook, which was written in such a way, so as to be as accessible to academics as it is to non academic community organizers. The purposes of the book are to first: take an in-depth historical and contemporary look at crime and corruption in the US/Mexico military political economy, second: to demystify our understanding of neoliberalism, and third: to look at some specific examples of grass roots liberation in Mexico through community based self determination, self defense, and autonomy.
