Q&A with Sociology Alumnus Noah Hurowitz

Portrait of Noah Hurowitz

The Office of Public Affairs recently published a Q&A with Sociology alumnus Noah Hurowitz about his work post-graduation and his new book, El Chapo: The Untold Story of the World’s Most Infamous Drug Lord. Here is what Noah had to say about his book:

"El Chapo is part biography, part critical history, with a dash of polemic mixed in for good measure. It follows El Chapo’s life and career from boyhood to his life imprisonment, with all the bizarre episodes and prison breaks that came between. But it also goes deeper, to examine the root causes of violence and corruption in Mexico, to illuminate the networks of collusion between state forces and organized crime, and to point out the myriad vested interested both public and private in the U.S. that ensure the brutality that naturally stems from prohibition will continue unabated."
