A revised and expanded edition of The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia.

1venty years of research have led to this revised and updated edition of Alfred W. McCoy's classic, The Politics of Heroin in Southeast Asia. In it, he concludes that, with global production and consumption of narcotics
at record levels and heroin use in America on the rise, it is time to confront the failure of the U.S. government's drug policy and to put an end to the CIA's complicity in the narcotics trade, which since World War II has been an integral part of the agency's efforts to maintain U.S. power abroad. A remarkable expose of official U.S. hypocrisy in its approaches to one of the world's greatest social problems, The Politics of Heroin offers an analysis that is destined to influence the public debate on drugs for years to come.
