warlordsBased on analysis from leading political scientists, advisors to heads of state, and award-winning academics, Warlords, Inc. exposes the secretive world of drug cartels and transnational criminal organizations. In addition to detailing the inner-workings and implications of these deviant groups, the authors also offer insight into how to learn from them and adjust our own tactics.

The book explores warlord entrepreneurs, who live under the radar of political authority and economic productivity. Defining their own power structures, these groups are oftentimes able to out-maneuver the capacities of conventional or mainstream infrastructures.

With an impressive list of contributing experts, Warlords, Inc. was written for activists, academics, policymakers, and anyone interested in learning more about black markets and warlord entrepreneurs.
