"This much-welcomed book provides a unique insight...into smaller countries' attempts to shape and mould their policy and response to drugs in the context of national, regional and international imperatives."--Gerry Stimson, Imperial College, London
"About a hundred years ago a few colonial countries plus the USA designed a system of prohibiting drugs that now can be considered to be a major problem for human rights and state sovereignty. The developing countries of the Caribbean act like a transit area between poor producing and rich consuming countries, creating a modern Al Capone's paradise. Klein helps analyze the situation from many angles. He presents a score of useful interpretations and figures that may speed up a thorough overhaul of this obsolete system of drug prohibition."--Peter Cohen, University of Amsterdam
"A refreshing look at the impact that drug policies have had on 'the problem' of drug use of the English speaking countries of the Caribbean."--Cindy Fazey, University of Liverpool
