In 1971, President Richard M. Nixon declared drugs "public enemy number one" and waged the War on Drug after tests on returning Vietnam War veterans revealed alarming levels of heroin use. Spanning two volumes of approximately 450 articles in an A-to-Z format, the encyclopedia explores this controversial war through the lens of varied disciplines, and a full spectrum of articles explains topics from Colombian cartels and Mexican kingpins to television reportage; from "just say no" advertising to heroin production; from narco-terrorism to over $500 billion in United States government expenditure. These articles, along with a range of pedagogical elements and availablity in both print and electronic formats combine to comprise an outstanding reference source.

Über den Autor

Mark Kleiman is Professor of Public Policy in the UCLA School of Public Affairs. He teaches courses on methods of policy analysis and on drug abuse and crime control policy. His current focus is on design of deterrent regimes to take advantage of positive-feedback effects, and the substitution of swiftness and predictability for severity in the criminal justice system generally and in community-corrections institutions specifically. He is the author of Marijuana: Costs of Abuse, Costs of Control and Against Excess: Drug Policy for Results, and is now at work on When Brute Force Fails: Strategy for Crime Control. He edits the Drug Policy Analysis Bulletin and blogs at The Reality-Based Community. His interests include political philosophy and the study of imperfectly rational decision-making and how to make policy to accommodate it. In addition to his academic work, Mr. Kleiman provides advice to local, state, and national governments on crime control and drug policy. Before coming to UCLA in 1995, Mr. Kleiman taught at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government and at the University of Rochester. Outside of academia, he has worked for the U.S. Department of Justice, for the City of Boston, for Polaroid Corporation, and on Capitol Hill (as a legislative assistant to Congressman Les Aspin). He graduated from Haverford College and did his graduate work (M.P.P., Ph.D.) at the Harvard Kennedy School. James Hawdon is a Professor of Sociology and Director of the Center for Peace Studies and Violence Prevention at Virginia Tech. Dr. Hawdon received his PhD in sociology from the University of Virginia and was previously a faculty member at Clemson University. Dr. Hawdon's research centers on issues of community, including how communities try to control crime and respond to critical incidents. His most recent research involves a cross-national comparison of the relationship between mass tragedies and community solidarity. He is also involved in research projects concerning online hate groups. He is also collaborating on a study of the causes and consequences of group-perpetuated violence. Dr. Hawdon has published extensively in the in the areas of crime, deviance, the sociology of drugs, the sociology of disasters, and the sociology of policing. His recent Encyclopedia of Drugs and Drug Policy, which is co-edited with Mark Klieman, has received critical acclaim, and his book, Drug and Alcohol Use as Functions of Social Structure, won the Adele Mellen Prize for Contributions to Scholarship.

Kritikerstimmen

"...it is obvious that the approach is broad ranging. But the issues discussed are related and relevant. The articles are descriptive and fact filled providing useful context as well as specific information...Under graduates will find it very helpful in grasping the complexities of the issues involved while scholars and professionals in the field will value the facts and solid background it offers. Academic libraries supporting curriculums as diverse as allied health and public administration will want to give it consideration."
