Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Basing their findings largely on recent field research, economist Clawson and political analyst Lee offer a thorough overview and analysis of the cocaine industry in Colombia, Peru, and Bolivia. Convinced that the United States cannot stop the Andean cocaine trade and that what ultimately happens will depend more on local politics than on U.S. intervention, they examine cocaine use; cocaine trafficking; the effects of the industry on Andean societies, economies, and politics; and realistic policy options for shrinking the industry. Among some of their interesting findings: cocaine revenues in Peru and Bolivia are less than six percent of gross national product; for every $100 of drugs sold in the United States, the federal government spends 60? trying to control distribution. Numerous charts, graphs, and references are included. Highly recommended for academic libraries.?Gary D. Barber, SUNY at Fredonia Lib.

Format: Paperback
As a person who has lived in and conducted business in Colombia, and as someone who is interested in the subjects of Colombian history, economics, and the country's struggle to maintain its own internal sovereignty, I found The Anean Cocaine Industry to be extremely informative. Bravo to Clawson and Lee -- a job well done. If you are interested in cocaine, its production and its socio-political and economic impacts, this book is an educational must read. Bottom line: a wonderfully comprehensive text on this subject.

Clawson and Lee managed to compile a vast amount of data from varied sources to produce a balanced on-the-mark analysis of the cocaine industry and its impact on the region. A very impressive book.

When your in parts of the world were their are drug lords and Wealthy people Like California it was Like magic before, like I was living in a Drug Lord Movie. No problems worries with people telling because that is no problem unless one gets involved with differnt people who don't share the same chemistry and that does not happen with people of that chemistry because everyone does not always think the same things.
