Présentation de l'éditeur

What is the value of telling the truth? For independent blog reporters in the midst of the Mexican Drug War, it's as important as their very lives, which are threatened on a daily basis.

Blog del Narco is a heavily visited website, both in Mexico and the rest of North America, and it reveals the horrible savagery of the drug cartels. More than this, it also speaks of corruption and violence from the government itself.

Many journalists in Mexico have been killed and silenced. Blog del Narco is not run by professional journalists, but it's the only forum for the true story of the violent drug war.

Dying for the Truth is the first and only book release that contains both text and images, many of them gruesome, from this vital public forum.

This book contains both the original Spanish-language posts in addition to their English translations. Truth is risky, and sometimes it's also harsh. Here is the reality of the Mexican Drug War, created in part by American demand for the products controlled by the cartels and their government collaborators.

The Blog del Narco authors live anonymously and under threat in Mexico and aspire to relocate to the United States.

Ok, this is my first review in amazon, I hope you find it helpful.

Before making the purchase I was a bit skeptical about the content it may have. I am a citizen from Mexico and I am well aware of the violence and drug wars occurring in the country.

The book it’s a compilation of most of the articles published in the website of “Blog del Narco”. However, not all of the articles are in the book; furthermore they have only published those articles in the book which are more sensationalists for the media and public in general (this of course including the pictures as it happened with no censure).

If you are a person who is not aware of the matters that took place in Mexico from 2006 – 2011 this will give you more than “an idea” of what happened. This is the story of a country that declared war against drug cartels and went out of hands in many fronts (police departments, special units, military and finally the presidency). As a Mexican I am glad that we finally confronted the drug cartels, but of course, sad that wasn’t a confrontation with idea or direction, but more with “eliminate the cartels”.

The book will not state the bigger problems: USA rate of drug consumption, Mexico strategic geographical location to traffic drugs into USA, and suppliers from south and central America. This book is basicalle an introduction, set of articles and conclusion.
As for the authors there are nothing descriptive as they are trying to cover her identity and most likely they are pursuing the truth that most media called a “citizenship psychosis” whiles them (media) denied publishing this in case of retaliation from any cartels.
In the end it’s a good book to read before going to bed and know what happened in Mexico. As for the future that await us… I still haven’t met a person with the crystal ball to foretell me the future.

Hope you find it helpful.

Par Alfredo Reyes - Publié sur Amazon.com

Nothing I've read up to this point prepared me for this book. Least of all the actual newspapers!

Seeing the photographs and images in the context of the news stories and events has completely changed my perception of Mexico today, and the heroic journalist or journalists who risked their lives to tell this story.

It is shocking to me that human beings can do this to each other. And that no one seems to be able to do anything about it.

The gruesome photographic evidence juxtaposed with the just-the-facts stories, plus behind it all a desperate cry for justice, has created an artful book that will change everyone who reads it.

When you get this, don't just skim through it for the photos, but make sure you take the time to read the entries in order--and a story of escalating lawlessness and terrorism unfolds.

I have never come across a book quite like this one. While reading it you genuinely feel like you are getting the real honest, un-adulterated, non watered-down or corrupted version of the news in Mexico.

This drug war effects every person on the planet, as I learned from reading the book. It is a huge, impactful, and important current event that is almost completely hidden from the media. Never before have I seen the the unveiling of such horrific and real truth that was otherwise so deeply obscured.

Perhaps the most important book I've ever read.

Is a very detailed account of the drug war and what it has come to today! Although the pictures are real so if uneasy with seeing blood and bodies chopped up dont get. Very interesting in every aspect of it!

Par Mark Prindle - Publié sur Amazon.com

After reading this book, this is no way that I will ever, ever venture into Mexico for any reason. The entire country has been taken over by violent drug cartels. Journalists are afraid to report on the violence because they are threatened with murder, the police are afraid to chase the offenders because they will be kidnapped, brutally tortured and beheaded; some of the leaders have even moved to Texas out of fear for their lives. After reading this book and viewing the gut-wrenching photos, I can only come away with the feeling that there is no hope at all. If you arrest 100 gang members, the corrupt prison wardens will help them escape. If you kill 100 gang members, 100 more will pop in to take their place. And these are VICIOUS gangs -- murdering innocent people on a weekly or even daily basis just to spread terror, leaving body parts strewn in public areas for commuters to find, creating blockades of stolen vehicles to enact mass destruction free of interference, holding entire towns hostage -- it's worse than any horror film I've ever seen.

It stuns me that people are complaining about Blog del Narco reprinting material from other sites. With the widescale murder and torture that has become a daily occurrence in Mexico right now, who gives a s*** about copyright infringement!? Somebody needs to do something to help these people, and the only way that will happen is if word of their dire situation gets out to the international community. Thanks to Blog Del Narco and Feral House, that may finally have a chance of happening.
