Product description


The Candy Machine is highly addictive (Metro)

It is hard to decide if Tom Feiling's future lies as a QC or the new Paul Theroux. He has written a vivid, argumentative, arresting book (The Sunday Telegraph)

I've read a few documentary accounts of the rise of cocaine, and this might be the best of them. It's clear, sharp and solid. Very well told (Evening Standard)

An important study of the cultivation, usage and suppression of cocaine (FT)

A cracking read . . . Strong stuff, beautifully argued (Literary Review)

About the Author

Tom Feiling is an award-winning documentary film-maker. He spent a year living and working in Colombia before making Resistencia- Hip-Hop in Colombia, which won numerous awards at film festivals around the world, and was broadcast in four countries. In 2003 he became Campaigns Director for the TUC's Justice for Colombia campaign, which organizes for human rights in Colombia. This is his first book.
