by Alfred W. McCoy

The Politics of Heroin is the first book to show that the CIA and the US government were implicated in worldwide drug trafficking. It offers thorough documentation of dishonesty and corrupt transactions at the highest levels from the Cold War to current. This breakthrough study examines the mechanics of drug trafficking across Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and South and Central America from a global perspective. New chapters examine the United States' role in the narcotics trade in Afghanistan and Pakistan before and after the Taliban's fall, as well as how US drug policy in Central America and Colombia has boosted the global supply of illicit substances.
