Global Fellow and Former Public Policy Fellow, Guadalupe Correa-Cabrera, recently published her new book, Los Zetas Inc.: Criminal Corporations, Energy, and Civil War in Mexico (UT Press, 2017).  Dr. Correa-Cabrera argues in the book that the Mexican Zetas Cartel effectively constitutes a transnational corporation and proposes a new theoretical framework for understanding the emerging actors, business structures, and economic implications of organized crime in Mexico.
