Editorial Reviews


This volume is quite simply a stupendous collection of essays. . . . We are reminded how now, as in the past, drugs and drug consumption have been arenas through and within which power and inequality, struggle and competition, attempts at and resistance to domination, combat between the powerful and not so powerful, have been played out at the local, regional, and international levels. (Harry Sanabria)

Walker has compiled a rich selection of perceptive and little-known historical documents on drug production and trafficking in the Americas since the turn of the century. . . . Essential reading for those who want to understand how we became involved in Latin American drug wars, the often-damaging impact of U.S. policies at home and abroad, and why these policies have done so little to stem the flow of drugs into the United States. (Kenneth E. Sharpe)

From the Back Cover

Drugs in the Western Hemisphere brings together forty-six essays that examine the complex negotiations and changing rhetoric revolving around issues of drugs and their control between the United States and its Latin American neighbors. Professor Walker offers a chronological overview of the evolution of U.S.-Latin American drug policy from the turn of the century to the Clinton administration.
