520    "The definitive account of the mass disappearance of 43 
       Mexican students and the government that tried to cover it
       up On September 26, 2014, 43 male students from the 
       Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers' College went missing in Iguala,
       Guerrero, Mexico. According to official reports, the 
       students commandeered several buses to travel to Mexico 
       City to commemorate the anniversary of the 1968 Tlatelolco
       Massacre. During the journey, local police intercepted the
       students and a confrontation ensued. By the morning, they 
       had disappeared without a trace. Hernández reconstructs 
       almost minute-by-minute the events of those nights in late
       September 2014, giving us what is surely the most complete
       picture available: her sources are unparalleled, since she
       has secured access to internal government documents that 
       have not been made public, and to video surveillance 
       footage the government has tried to hide and destroy. 
       Hernández demolishes the Mexican state's official version,
       which the Peña Nieto government cynically dubbed the 
       "historic truth." State officials at all levels, from 
       police and prosecutors to the upper echelons of the PRI 
       administration, conspired to put together a fake case, 
       concealing or manipulating evidence, and arresting and 
       torturing dozens of "suspects" who then obliged with full 
       "confessions" that matched the official lie. In the wake 
       of the students' disappearances, protestors in Mexico took
       up the slogan "Fue el estado"-"It was the state." 
       Hernández's book is the one that gives most precision and 
       credibility to the claim: by following the role of the 
       various Mexican state agencies through the events in such 
       remarkable detail, she allows to see exactly which parts 
       of the state are responsible for which component of this 
       monumental crime"--|cProvided by publisher.
