This volume contains Pulitzer Prize-winning stories and pictures about five U.S. neighbor countries. The Bahamas are represented by articles showing the connections between Gamblers and Criminals, and the country also is characterized as an Offshore Tax Paradise, based on the so-called Panama Papers. Reports on Canada analyse the Social-Economic System and describe the main Resources and Industries. The Cuba book chapter discusses the brutal Batista government and discloses Fidel Castro's Soviet Policy. There are articles on Richness and Poorness in Haiti and photos from the End of the Military Rule. Finally, Mexico's Drug Corruption Chains are unveiled as well as the country's strange Criminal Justice System.
