Bad Neighbor Policy: Washington's Futile War on Drugs in Latin America
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungThe domestic phase of Washington's war on drugs has received considerable criticism over the years from a variety of individuals. Until recently, however, most critics have not stressed the damage that the international phase of the drug was has done to our Latin American neighbors. That lack of attention has begun to change and Ted Carpenter chronicles our disenchantment with the hemispheric drug war. Ending the prohibitionist system would produce numerous benefits for both Latin American societies and the U.S. In a book deriving from his work at the Cato Institute, Carpenter paints a picture of this ongoing fiasco.
