Editorial Reviews

Review

"A persuasive, credible, and imaginative analysis of a rather unusual and fascinating segment of social life... The very modest tone, scope, and aim of this tightly argued ethnographic work belies its profound and penetrating analysis of the drift of American life." -- Peter K. Manning, Contemporary Sociology

About the Author

Patricia A. Adler is Assistant Professor of Sociology at the University of Colorado, Boulder.

For all the questions you've ever had about high level drug smuggling but were deathly afraid to ask anybody...this book is for you! Adler chronicles how smugglers and dealers first entered the drug world, and how they rose to the top, and I do mean top rung of the drug dealing/smuggling community. An excellent study that doesn't read like academia.

Not a story, reads like a school book, with the author backing up her research with "shout-outs", such as (Blake 1967). Boring read, pass this up. Read "snow blind" by robert sabbag, best book ever on the subject.
