A nuanced exploration of life in la zonathe prostitution zone in the border town of Reynosa, Mexico, where narcos, sex workers, and missionaries are entangled in revelatory relationships of love and obligation. Sex, drugs, religion, and love are potent combinations in la zonaa regulated prostitution zone in the city of Reynosa, across the border from Hidalgo, Texas. During the years anda time of intense drug violence, Sarah Luna met and built relationships with two kinds of migrants, women who moved from rural Mexico to Reynosa to become sex workers and American missionaries who moved from the United States to forge a fellowship with those workers.
Luna examines the entanglements, both intimate and financial, that define their lives. Using the concept of obligarshe delves into the connections that tie sex workers to their families, their clients, their pimps, the missionaries, and the drug dealers—and to the guilt, power, and comfort of faith.
Love in the Drug War scrutinizes not only la zona and the people who work to survive there, but also Reynosa itself—including the influences of the United States—adding nuance and new understanding to the current Mexico-US border crisis. Sarah Luna is the Kathryn A. She received her PhD from the University of Chicago. It also offers an intimate lens on the effects of the militarized war on drugs on vulnerable populations.
