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"

From the Back Cover

This book is a vivid account of the world inhabited by 'wholesale""'illicit drug traffickers. Based on six years of participant observation, fieldwork, and extensive interviews in an elite Southern California community of dealers, the book gives a rare glimpse into the decadent yet fascinating ""'subculture of drug trafficking and unending partying, mixed with occasional cloak-and-dagger subterfuge.'

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.
