The book I read was No Country for Old Men and the aspect from the book that I choose to research and write about is the war on drugs between the Texas and Mexico border. Mexico has been used as a transshipment point for drugs and contraband between Latin America and the United States. Mexico gave alcohol to the United States throughout the duration of the prohibition of alcohol. During the 80’s and 90’s Colombia’s main drug exporter was Pablo Escobar who mainly dealt with cocaine. Colombian organizations partnered up with the Mexico traffickers to transport cocaine through Mexico in to the United States. Mexico is a huge drug transit and producing country. It is also the main foreign supplier of cannabis. Almost half of the cartel’s revenues come from cannabis however, cocaine, heroin, and methamphetamine are also traded. The US State Department estimates that 90% of cocaine entering the United States is produced in Colombia and that the main transit route is through Mexico. The use of drugs in Mexico is still lower compared to Canada and the United States, however with the increased role of Mexico in the production of drugs, the availability of drugs has increased since the 1980’s.
I chose to write about this because it played a large role in the story and quite frankly, it is very interesting. That is the aspect of the story No Country for Old Men that I chose to write about.

Sociological positivism studies the relationship between social situations and crime. It studies the social structures of an offender, such as family, environment, and social status and how that relates to the crime. It also purposes that criminal acts are inevitable because of certain social aspects of life. Biological positivism is the belief that some people are born to commit crime. This theory studies evolution, as well as psychological differences between criminals and non-criminals to support the theory. Psychological positivism supports the claim that criminal acts are the result of mental illness or personality disorders. This theory looks at criminal acts as non-avoidable. Common Models There are two main models that society uses to determine if acts are criminal. The first is Consensus model. The consensus model works on the assumption that society as a whole have the same moral code and beliefs, therefore anything that goes against those said values are considered a crime. The second model that society uses is the conflict model. In......
