Summary
"Khat has been cultivated and consumed for millennia in the countries of the Horn of Africa and the Red Sea, where it is prized for its euphoric qualities. The Khat Controversy presents the first broad, international study of khat - from its value as a crop to local farmers and national economies, to its pharmacology and effects, to its use in a wide range of social rituals - and outlines how an international policy on khat might best be constructed."--Jacket
