Reviews
"The Long War on Drugs makes diplomatic history, the interaction between US domestic and regional drug policies, and social and cultural history work together to show how the present has been produced by the past. In beautiful prose, Anne L. Foster explains the diplomatic history of global prohibition and the various national interests it has supposedly served over time. Foster does a great job of bringing the current situation into view."--Nancy D. Campbell, author of "OD: Naloxone and the Politics of Overdose"
"A smart, compelling, and accessible soup-to-nuts narrative history of US drug wars at home and abroad. It's a terrific survey for newcomers that also advances the field with fresh insights and synthesis."--David Herzberg, author of "White Market Drugs: Big Pharma and the Hidden History of Addiction in America"
