Busted: Stone Cowboys, Narco-Lords and Washington's War on Drugs
By Mike Gray

In assessing the famed campaign of the subtitle, Gray (Drug Crazy) has brought together 33 contributors, often journalist-analysts with access to sources that vary from coca farmers in Colombia to former drug czar Barry McCaffrey. The majority agrees that the war on drugs is an exercise in futility. Journalist Ethan Nadelmann believes the policy has failed because U.S. politicians prefer "rhetoric to reality, and moralism to pragmatism." Craig Reinarman and Joshua Wolf Shenk probe the psychology behind Americans' legal, illegal, and prescribed relationships to mind-altering substances, and report that U.S. drug warriors "fear Dutch drug policy like the Catholic Church feared Galileo."

Gray, chair of the advocacy group Common Sense for Drug Policy, has collected a vibrant group of thinkers; the opinions are diverse, and the quality of writing consistently high. Most of what they say won't be surprising to critics of U.S. drug policy, but having the arguments in one place and in an accessible format should be a boon to campus and lay readers.

Maximizing Harm:
Losers and Winners in the Drug War

By Stephen Young

A short, easy-to-read, yet thoroughly documented guide to the drug war.

The drug policies of the United States have consistently made drug problems worse, not better. Fatal flaws in the policies ensure problems will intensify. While lawmakers have enough information to understand this pattern, not only do they ignore it, they strive to keep such information away from the public.

Actually, the amount of information challenging the drug war is overwhelming. Maximizing Harm gives a brief introduction to the central issues in the drug war: why it can't work; who gets hurt; who profits; why it doesn't just end; and who is working for peace.

From this former CIA operative comes an exciting, fast-paced, and unsettling account of a top-secret operation that was designed to put the American government in effective control of some of South America's biggest drug cartels.

Ending the War on Drugs
By Dirk Chase Eldredge

Eldredge, a former Reagan campaigner and entrepreneur, believes that America's War on Drugs is an utter failure, and he pleads for legalization. Arguing that nothing seems to have been learned from the experiment with Prohibition, he points out the negative impacts of the drug war on crime rates, corruption, prison crowding, public health, civil liberties, and race relations. He proposes that the government sell illicit drugs in a system similar to state liquor stores, with the profits used for treatment and education. He argues that realizing there will always be a market for mind-altering substances will permit us to search for a "good" realistic solution rather than the "perfect" chimera of total interdiction.
