Although the US has spent more than $25 billion on international drug-control programs over the last two decades, 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 US 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 US war on drugs.

About the Author:

Coletta A. Youngers is director of the "Drugs, Democracy, and Human Rights" project at the Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA). Prior to joining WOLA in 1987, she worked for Catholic Relief Services in Peru, managing development projects. Eileen Rosin is drug policy project manager at WOLA. She has worked in the areas of international development and human rights for more than twenty years, with extensive experience in El Salvador and Guatemala.

Review:

A well-researched project that cogently discusses the international and domestic contexts and provides a comprehensive and reasoned account of problems of the current U.S. drug policy. --Jennifer S. Holmes, Journal of Politics

A comprehensive and forceful analysis of the U.S.-backed drug war in Latin America. Scholars and policymakers should read this volume not for balance, but instead for a passionate perspective on an enormously important foreign policy issue. --Russell Crandall, Latin American Politics and Society

An excellent book. One may not stop hoping that it will find its way to Congress and help the relevant lawmakers to come to their senses. --Menno Vellinga, European Review of Latin American and Caribbean Studies
