Summary
Although the U.S. has spent more than USD25 billion on international drug-control programs, it has failed to reduce the supply of cocaine and heroin entering the country. It has, however, succeeded in generating widespread, often profoundly damaging, consequences, most notably in Latin America and the Caribbean. The authors of Drugs and Democracy in Latin America offer a comprehensive review of U.S. drug-control policies toward the region, assess the impact of those policies on democracy and human rights, and present eight detailed case studies. A project of the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA), this major work is the first systematic, region-wide documentation and analysis of the collateral damage caused by the U.S. war on drugs.--
