Whitewash- Pablo Escobar and the Cocaine Wars

£70.00

Product description

Dust Jacket worn at edges, some very small tears.
Cover marked slightly on front. Binding tight.
A little yellowing along the edge of the page and foxing on free end-papers.
Text block in good condition.

Pablo Escobar, king of the Medellin cartel in Colombia, was one of the richest and most intriguing villains of all time.
Strong lays bare the corruption behind the facades of government.
He discusses the cocaine trade, the Medellin Cartell, government corruption, and violence in Columbia through an examination of the drug lord's life.

Simon Strong paints a complex picture of a man whose appalling ruthlessness was matched only by the stridence of his claims that he was working for the good of the population he bombed and terrorized.
