2 - 4 weeks availability
The first comprehensive analysis of anti-drug crusades in twentieth-century China, this book chronicles the evolution of ChinaOs anti-narcotics movement from its shaky but enthusiastic beginnings in 1906, through its dramatic success in the early years of the communist regime, to its continuance today in the face of resurgent opium and heroin use. Especially valuable is the authorOs detailed description of the CCPOs successful opium eradication campaigns in the early 1950s, which includes previously unavailable archival information and personal interviews. This rich and multifaceted story will be essential reading for Asia scholars and narcotics researchers alike.
Zhou Yongming is associate professor of anthropology, University of Wisconsin, Madison.
