Vol. 18, No. 4 (1991)
This issue focuses on the international and domestic facets of the War on Drugs. Authors from Latin America, Australia, and the United States critique the legal and media discourses justifying the program, examine the forces creating the demand for legal and illegal drugs, and conduct a search for an equitable and rational social policy -- one not dependent on a "war" footing.
Guest edited by Mark Rabine, this issue examines the role of the War on Drugs in the post-Gulf War era. Both timely and of enduring interest, it analyzes the demand for intoxicating drugs, the international dimensions of the problem, and the futility of the "war" approach to social policy. Contributors deal with domestic policy implications and the uses of the U.S. military in taking this war to troubled areas of the Third World.
