Aquí están las protagonistas de la violencia; vemos sus caras, sus gestos, escuchamos sus voces, suenan los tiros y caen los muertos casi a nuestros pies... Centroamérica es una región que poco conoce la palabra paz. Tras las guerras civiles de finales del siglo pasado, sus países recibieron una oleada de deportados, muchos de ellos pandilleros que inauguraron una nueva guerra en las calles. Eso, sumado a unos Estados débiles y corruptos, un crimen organizado que ve en estos lares una suculenta plaza y unas víctimas que apenas son escuchadas compone una de las regiones más violentas del mundo, y una de las menos contadas. Los valientes reporteros de El Faro, Carlos Martínez, Roberto Valencia, Daniel Valencia Caravantes, José Luis Sanz, Óscar Martínez y Juan Martínez, llevan más de tres años inmerso en ese charco oscuro de la violencia y, nos adentran con deslumbrante intimidad en historias de horror real,contadas con toda la terrible fuerza y complejidad de la vida actual.

This is a book about one of the deadliest places in the world El Salvador and Honduras have had the highest homicide rates in the world over the past ten years, with Guatemala close behind. Every day more than 1,000 people—men, women, and children—flee these three countries for North America. Óscar Martínez, author of The Beast, named one of the best books of the year by the Economist, Mother Jones, and the Financial Times, fleshes out these stark figures with true stories, producing a jarringly beautiful and immersive account of life in deadly locations. Martínez travels to Nicaraguan fishing towns, southern Mexican brothels where Central American women are trafficked, isolated Guatemalan jungle villages, and crime-ridden Salvadoran slums. With his precise and empathetic reporting, he explores the underbelly of these troubled places. He goes undercover to drink with narcos, accompanies police patrols, rides in trafficking boats and hides out with a gang informer. The result is an unforgettable portrait of a region of fear and a subtle analysis of the North American roots and reach of the crisis, helping to explain why this history of violence should matter to all of us.

The Object of the Atlantic is a wide-ranging study of the transition from a concern with sovereignty to a concern with things in Iberian Atlantic literature and art produced between 1868 and 1968. Rachel Price uncovers the surprising ways that concrete aesthetics from Cuba, Brazil, and Spain drew not only on global forms of constructivism but also on a history of empire, slavery, and media technologies from the Atlantic world. Analyzing Jose Marti’s notebooks, Joaquim de Sousandrade’s poetry, Ramiro de Maeztu’s essays on things and on slavery, 1920s Cuban literature on economic restructuring, Ferreira Gullar’s theory of the “non-object,” and neoconcrete art, Price shows that the turn to objects—and from these to new media networks—was rooted in the very philosophies of history that helped form the Atlantic world itself.
