For courses in Drugs & Society.

Incorporating fields of sociology, criminology, and public policy, this book provides a more complete understanding of the issues surrounding drugs.

Unique coverage includes topics such as the history of drugs in the U.S., the integral role of race in the creation of drug laws, the elaboration of the global trade in drugs, the U.S. drug control policies and the impact of the U.S. drug war on international relations.
