The brutal truth of Salvadoran gangs

Sponsor Columbia Global Reports is here to ensure you know that William Wheeler is appearing in Seattle on January 21st, at the Elliott Bay Book Company.

Wheeler's astonishing new book State of War: MS-13 and El Salvador’s World of Violence tells a compelling, gripping story about how corruption at the highest levels of the Salvadoran government is empowering the brutal Central American gangs.

You can read the entire introduction to the book on our sponsor's page (you won't want to miss this), as well as see what other reviewers had to say about it. More information about the reading can be found on Elliott Bay's webpage, and you can also pre-order the book from them.
