City of Omens characters ´ 7 Opens up a striking new lens into immigration the drug war human trafficking and the US Mexico bord. Is this book important Absolutely Is this book relevant and timely For sure Is the negative impact of the US and its policies on this border town desperate to survive clearly mapped sensitively discussed and unfathomably tragic Without a doubt Unfortunately as someone with a background in public health I found this book to be a little too journalistic and narrative and not nearly as clear with the data as I would have liked The combination of this writing style and the focus on two or three archetypical subjects including one expert patient who is herself employed by the research group Werb works with and therefore arguably a less reliable sample just made the underlying epidemiological model feel a bit flimsy underdeveloped That said this book has sparked my interest and I will immediately utilize his very helpful bibliography to further research El Cuete borderland health and the inspiring women who live with the multi tiered challenges Tijuana presents I will also read his peer approved work which undoubtedly will address the data gaps I had with this book
