Smoke and Mirrors: The War on Drugs and the Politics of Failure

by

In a blistering expose based on interviews with policy makers and a catalog of damning statistics, journalist Dan Baum shows how America's war on drugs went from a politically potent campaign ploy (courtesy of Richard Nixon) to today's multibillion-dollar government boondoggle -- a "war" that's run roughshod over Constitutional rights and put a quarter of young black men behind bars without so much as denting the demand for drugs.
