Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: When Dan Werb began to study Tijuana's murder rate in 2013, he discovered that it could only be understood as one symptom among many. Environmental toxins, drug overdoses, HIV transmission: all were killing women at overwhelming rates. Werb's search for the ultimate causes of Tijuana's femicide casts new light on immigration, human trafficking, addiction, and the true cost of American empire-building.
