José Manuel Valenzuela: Trazos de sangre y fuego

The destructive features of the late international capitalist order brought the life-and-death relationship to the forefront of social, humanist, ecological and artistic discussion. The processes of poverty and social inequalities have been emphasized, as well as the scenarios of violence and death that involve people, the planet and life itself.

This book invites to rethink the contemporary world through the reflection on biopolitics, necropolitics, juvenile homicide and narcoculture. In addition, it will discuss the conformation of characteristics of distinction in some sectors of the middle and high classes which emphasize the inequalities, as in the case of the racist and classist expression of the myriads.


José Manuel Valenzuela Arce is Doctor in Social Sciences with a Specialization in Sociology from El Colegio de México and Master in Regional Development from Colegio de la Frontera Norte. His works have been pioneering and of great importance for understanding the socio-cultural processes that define the border between Mexico and the United States, as well as the youth movements in Latin America and the United States, fields in which he is renowned as a leading author.
