Peter Andreas authored an article in the latest edition of the Spanish-language Foreign Affairs Latinoamérica. The piece, titled "De la Revolución estadounidense a la guerra contra el narcotráfico en México," describes the surprising similarities between Mexico today and pre-Revolution America. It is drawn from Professor Andreas' forthcoming book Smuggler Nation: How Illicit Trade Made America, available from Oxford University Press in February.
