Cocaine: Global Histories

Paul Gootenberg
Routledge, 1999 - 213 pagina's
Annotation Originally a medical miracle, cocaine is now a dangerous pariah. Drawing on exciting international perspectives, Cocaine analyzes and rethinks the origins of the modern drug. For the first time a book brings together the world's leading writers on the history of cocaine. Themes explored include: the manufacture, sale, arid control of cocaine in the United States; Amsterdam's complex cocaine culture; Japan and the Southeast Asian cocaine industry; export of cocaine prohibitions to Peru; and sex, drugs and race in London. Cocaine unveils new sources and covert social, cultural and political transformations that reveal cocaine's hidden history.
