“In order to solve a problem one must first fully understand the problem,” he says. “Solutions derived from ignorance and denial worsen the problem.”

In “Cocaine Trafficking in the Caribbean and West Africa in the era of the Mexican cartels” (published by iUniverse), author Daurius Figueira’s new criminology book, readers are given a history of illicit drug trafficking through the Caribbean and West Africa following the dominance of the Mexican cartels.

“‘Cocaine Trafficking in the Caribbean and West Africa in the era of the Mexican Cartels’’ describes and analyzes Mexicana cartels and their influence on the drug trade in the Caribbean and West Africa,” says Figueira. “It shows how the drug trade has evolved today as a new order and how that evolution was uniquely created by the Mexicana cartels. Pax Mexicana!”

Readers follow Figueira as he takes them through what he deems to be the three major developments within the illicit drug trade of the Caribbean Basin that changed the nature of the trade and helped it expand throughout the world. The first being the trafficking jump to West Africa by Caribbean Basin drug trafficking organizations; the second being the rise to dominance of the Mexican cartels in the illicit trade of the Caribbean Basin; the third being the evolution and nature of Caribbean gangland and its organic links to the illicit drug trade.

“In order to solve a problem one must first fully understand the problem,” he says. “Solutions derived from ignorance and denial worsen the problem.”
