Latin America accounts for 8% of 🗺️population, but 36% of homicides (2012)

Why do so many people kill each other?

Awesome new book by Professor Deborah Yashar @Princeton.
What explains temporal, regional, & subnational variation in Latin American homicides?

- Expanding illicit economies & high-stakes incentives for control of trade
- Weak/complicit states
- High competition between rival organisations

--> HIGH VIOLENCE
As someone who spends all their time theorising social change, I absolutely 😍this kind of comparative analysis.

Asking, does your theory of X explain:

- Change over time,
- Differences between countries, &
- Subnational variation?

If not, can you really explain X?
