About this book

This volume does four things. Firstly it examines the nexus between the illegal narcotics enterprise as a social phenomenon and political economy as a scholarly issue area. Secondly it explores the regional and global contexts of the political economy of illegal narcotics operations in the Caribbean. Thirdly it assesses some of the political economy connections and consequences of the enterprise in the region. Finally, it discusses some of the measures adopted to contend with the illegal drug challenge in the area.

Reviews

'a major contribution to the public discourse, both academic and non-academic, on the illegal drug trade, its world-wide ramifications, and related international development issues...the range of topics covered and the in-depth analysis of the various issues addressed therein, make this book a must not only for academics interested in these matters but most certainly for policy makers and all those engaged in the fight against illegal drugs.' - Sir Neville Nicholls, President, Caribbean Development bank, Barbados

An excellent discussion is provided about the inherent tensions and conflict in the US-Caribbean drug connection. ...The book provides an excellent overview of the problems, the political consequences, and ongoing efforts to attack the problem. Necessarily, the problems and strategies are dynamic.' - Bruce Zagaris, Berliner, Corcoran & Rowe, LLP
