Title: The Strength of the Wolf: The Secret History of America's War on Drugs

ISBN : 1859845681
Author : Douglas Valentine
Publisher : Verso Books
Media : Hardcover
SKU MIX31-U31-33A-RES-58478


Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatched from our warehouse in the UK

From Publishers Weekly&newline;&newline;Before the Drug Enforcement Administration was created in 1973, before the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs was founded in 1968, the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN) served as the country's primary drug law enforcement agency. In this thoroughly researched history, Valentine (The Phoenix Program; The Hotel Tacloban, etc.) offers an in-depth look at the FBN's obscure organization and its various activities, which lasted from 1930 until the end of the ?60s. Valentine writes extensively about Harry J. Anslinger, the commissioner whose &doublequote;personality, policies and appointments&doublequote; defined the agency and the government's war on drugs for more than 30 years. He describes how FBN officers were trained to &doublequote;make arrests, gather evidence for presentation in court, test and handle seized narcotics, tail suspects without being seen, and rule their informants with an iron fist.&doublequote; Drawing upon interviews with former agents and federal officers (such as Howard Chappell, George Gaffney and Col. Tully Acampora), Valentine also provides firsthand accounts of bureau operations both at home and abroad, and of business relationships fostered among FBN ranks. Despite the volume's ambitious premise and Valentine's hard work, however, this lengthy history will probably fail to engross most casual readers since its material proves dense and, occasionally, difficult. But for political historians and those already interested in the history of the war on drugs, Valentine's unearthing of rare primary sources should prove invaluable. 16 pages of b&w photos&newline;Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.
