About this book

Drugs and Empires introduces new research that re-evaluates the relationship between intoxicants and empires in the modern world. It re-examines controversies about such issues as the Asian opium trade or the sale of alcohol in Africa and addresses new areas of research, including the impact of imperial drugs profits on American history.
