Author Meets Readers invites Carleton students and the community to join an informal discussion on new books published by members of the Carleton University Faculty of Public Affairs.
About the Book
Illegal Markets, Violence, and Inequality: Evidence from a Brazilian Metropolis proposes an analysis of contemporary drug markets in Recife, Brazil’s most violent metropolitan area. Building on extensive fieldwork and interviews, it offers insights into the workings of drug markets and into the reasons why some of them are violent, and others not.
