The War on Drugs: An International Encyclopedia
ABC-CLIO, 1999 - 317 sivua
The global drug trade is one of the most prominent examples of supply and demand. Despite such counter-measures as the execution of narcotics dealers in China, and the United States' "war on drugs", drug traffickers have always managed to meet the demand and satisfy an ever-growing customer base.; This is the story of the world of drugs, from the infamous Opium Wars to the legal availability of drugs in the US during the 20th century, from the unexpected boost given to illicit drugs by Prohibition to the great success of the French Connection.; In addition to offering a wealth of little-known facts, the encyclopaedia also covers major dealers, cartels, organizations, smuggling and anti-smuggling strategies, major miscalculations and disasters, drug epidemics, legal restraints, famous incidents and more.
