This is a really nice bookIn Nemesis Misha Glenny tells the story of one Antonio Francisco Bonfim Lopez O Nem de Rocinha a drug lord from one of the biggest and poorest favelas in Rio After reading Killing Pablo which focuses on Colombia s Pablo Escobar I was intrigued to read about Brazil s contemporary historyNem became involved in the drug trade through misfortune his daughter was sick he needed money for her treatment so he asked the don of Rocinha for a loan and offered to work for him so he could pay off his debt Because of his intelligence he uickly rose through the ranks and eventually became the don himselfNem was a remarkable character he combined both cruelty and compassion He was keen on reducing violence in the favela and during his reign the murder rate went down significantly He invested in social programs and tried to help people He also avoided violence as much as possible But a chain of unfortunate events with his gangs bandidos put him in the spotlight of the federal police just as Brazil was preparing for the world cup and the olympics and had initiated its program of pacification in favelas across the cityThe book has a wealth of information personal stories and it paints a colorful sad background into the lives of people in Brazil the huge disparity between the rich and the poor the massive police corruption the rise of the cocaine trade in the 80s and the 90s the rivalry among different factions Woven into it is the personal story of Nem his passions his love triangles and he did get in trouble when his wife and girlfriend formed a coalition against him his modest ambitions and his exasperation with controlling the crime and the violence in RocinhaNem does not come across as a bad guy like someone who is a victim of their environment and circumstances The author believes he would have been a successful businessman or a manager if he d had better education or lived in a better part of RioSometimes it s a little hard to follow the narrative because a lot of people have similar or even identical names and there are many players involved But it s never boring In fact this is a page turner Refreshing touching eye opening Highly recommendedIgor

Misha Glenny ´ 4 review

Nemesis One Man and the Battle for Rio Free download à PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook The astonishing story of an ordinary man forced to make a decision that would turn his world upside down   How did Antônio Francisco Bonfim Lopes a hardworking young father become the king of Rocinha the largest slum in Rio; the head of a drug cartel; and perhaps Brazil’s most wanted criminal known to all as “Nem” Nemesis is the riveting account of his ruthless ascent in Rio. As a Brazilian who lived in Rio but also grew up in Germany Ihave a bit of a different perspective on Rio but I love that city to bits even though it s one hell of a crazy dangerous place I heard about this book on Brazilian websites when it was released in Brazil and I immediately ordered it I still remember the night when Nem was caught in the back of a car I as every other Brazilian watched it on TV and I remember how I felt really disgusted by the way the police and press treated Nem in that scene It was so hypocritical because we all knew how many of the military police and civil police are involved in drug trafficking how many politicians are part of the drug industry How many rich kids take drugs and how many of the high society are happy to toss so much money on their cocaine So I felt really disgusted to see everyone bully one of the many many players in that huge game as if all of them were in a place to point fingers since most of them were probably involved in the drug trade too I didn t feel necessarily sorry for Nem I knew he was a drug boss but I still felt cheap watching those stupid police man push him around in that waySo when I heard of this book I was intrigued interviews with Nem I was soldThis book turned out to be so much better than I imagined Usually I am weary of anything a gringo writes about Brazil I have met many gringos who wanted to explain my own country to me But Misha Glenny did a really good job on this documentary In a way this kind of book probably couldn t have been written by a Brazilian because it needed a bit of detachment a bit of neutrality to tell the whole story without judgement and without too many emotions It s difficult to stay neutral when you think of the corrup politics of a place like Rio I am already getting worked up just thinking about it It s the epitome of unfairness it s the perfect example of everything gone wrong A vicious circle where no one wins in the end except obviously the highest playersThis book tells the story of organized crime in Rio focusing on Rocinha the biggest favela slum in Brazil but also giving an insight of how the different gangs came to be how favelas started getting involved with drugs how police became so corrupt and parallel to that you have Nem s story which is eually fascinating than Rio s history with the drug business I can only recommend this book to everyone who is interested in learning about how the drug industry works in South America and how it effects people s lives But you will also get to know about a very intelligent man who managed to become one of the most sucessful drug bosses of Rocinha in Rio
