About this book

This book analyses the life histories of Jamaican men involved in the UK drugs trade, including wholesalers, street dealers, specialist cooks, cutters, and growers. Employing a life history approach, their autobiographical accounts are examined to provide an in-depth and unique insight of their journeys into drugs and crime.

Reviews

“This is a well-organised and well-written book that can be useful in retracing the steps and experiences of migrant Jamaican males and their entry and roles as functionaries in the globally debilitating drug trade, with a focus on the UK. … I believe that this book will be a welcome addition to the library of any serious academic, practitioner or student since it could provide insights into the transnational nature of people, drugs and crime.” (Wendell Wallace, Caribbean Journal of Criminology, Vol. 1 (03), April, 2018)
