The Global Politics of Drug Control sets the drug problem into a theoretical framework which aids understanding of the phenomenon by focusing on changing international values and norms. In the early literature on drug use, drugs were considered primarily as a social problem and the focus was on seeking a national policy. However, in the 80s the problem was increasing, requiring international cooperation and action, bringing the concerned to the arena of international relations scholars. The book focuses on changing values and norms in the international community that allow the discipline of international relations to add something new to the current debate on the subject. This book should appeal to all those interested in the current discussions on the drug phenomenon as well as to students and academics in the area of international relations and related disciplines.
