A diverse set of essays that touch on many aspects of
America's longest war,
the war on drugs. . . . The essays cover a hot button topic at a time when the drug policies in the Americas are being reassessed.
Some of the best US and Mexican border scholars sit down and apply what they know about the transborder relationship as it relates to narco-trafficking in and from Mexico. They ask what can be done and realize the war, as conceived, cannot be won. A worthy read for all interested in the topic.
