Product description

Review

Praise for the work of Peter Dale Scott: Cocaine Politics For the evidence that narcotics . . . have been instruments of U.S. foreign policy, you simply have to read Cocaine Politics. This, one of the most enlightening books of the year, will redefine your usage of the silly term 'drug war.''''--Christopher Hitchens "The Nation "

Peter Dale Scott takes us for a controversial tour along the dark side of American foreign policy. The book builds a powerful case that Washington's War on Drugs is at best futile and at worst criminal. The overall target is the militarization of our foreign policy. The facts and conclusions are chilling.--Ambassador Robert White, president of the Center for International Policy

Praise for the work of Peter Dale Scott: Coming to Jakarta Coming to Jakarta is the most important political poem to appear in the English language in a very long time.--Robert Hass --This text refers to the paperback edition.

He is married to Ronna Kabatznick, and has three children by his former wife, Maylie Marshall. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
