No greater threat is faced by America today than that posed by illicit drugs -- and this despite the well-publicized menace of international terrorism. For however fearful the murder and destruction our terrorist enemies may bring, they come as an external threat against which American society may arm itself. Drugs, however, corrode society from within. In many of our cities, whole neighborhoods have already been utterly demoralized by drugs, transformed into lost places of criminality and despair. The War Against Drugs requires action on a number of distinct fronts. This essential introduction sums up the current state of the conflict. It provides details of the main types of different drugs concerned, the countries they come from, and the way in which they are manufactured. It also examines the historical background and considers the likely course of future actions, including. As important as these measures are, they will not be enough by themselves to bring victory, however heroic and unflagging the work of our various official protectors. In the end, The War Against Drugs warns, the frontline lies within each and every one of us: only we can assure a final victory in what is truly a conflict of life and death. Book jacket.
