ZeroZeroZero - Look at Cocaine and All You See is Powder. Look Through Cocaine and You See the World

Roberto Saviano

From the author of the #1 international bestseller Gomorrah comes an electrifying investigation of the international cocaine trade, as vicious as it is powerful, and its hidden role in the global economy In many countries, "000" flour is the finest on the market. It is hard to find, but it is soft, light, almost impalpable-like the purest, highest quality grade of cocaine. ZeroZeroZero is also the title of Roberto Saviano's unforgettable, internationally bestselling exploration of the inner workings of the global cocaine trade-its rules and armies, and the true depth of its reach into the world economy and, by extension, its grasp on us all. Gomorrah, Saviano's explosive account of the Neapolitan mob, the Camorra, was a worldwide publishing sensation. It struck such a nerve with the Camorra that Saviano has had to live under twenty-four-hour police protection for more than eight years. During this time he has come to know law enforcement agencies and officials around the world. With their cooperation, Saviano has broadened his perspective to take in the entire global "corporate" entity that is the drug trade and the complex money-laundering operations that allow it to function, often with the complicity of the world's biggest banks. The result is a truly harrowing and groundbreaking synthesis of intimate literary narrative and geopolitical analysis of one of the most powerful dark forces in our economy. Saviano tracks the shift in the cocaine trade's axis of power, from Colombia to Mexico, and relates how the Latin American cartels and gangs have forged alliances, first with the Italian crime syndicates, then with the Russians, Africans, and others. On the one hand, he charts a remarkable increase in sophistication as these criminal entities diversify into many other products and markets. On the other, he reveals the astonishing increase in the severity of violence as they have fought to protect and extend their power.Saviano is a writer and journalist of rare courage and a thinker of impressive intellectual d
