Summary
(Publisher-supplied data) Publisher description for Drug diplomacy in the twentieth century : an international history / William B. McAllister. Bibliographic record and links to related information available from the Library of Congress catalog. Information from electronic data provided by the publisher. May be incomplete or contain other coding. Drug Diplomacy in the Twentieth Century is the first comprehensive historical account of the evolution of the global drug regime. The book analyzes how the rules and regulations that encompass the drug question came to be framed and examines the international historical aspects of this global problem. Including coverage of substances from heroin and cocaine to morphine, hallucinogens and alcohol, the book discusses topics such as: the historical development of drug-control laws and institutions; the relationship between the drug question and issues like trade policy, the Cold War and medical considerations; and reasons why the goal to eliminate drug abuse has been so difficult to accomplish
