This challenging and insightful book looks at the fallacies and misdirection of drug policy, providing a fresh perspective on the true nature of the drug problem; a problem that knows no geographical, racial, or class barriers; that is not always obvious in drug policy-making and enforcement. Drugs, Victims and Race contains an up-to-date treatment of drugs policy, an outline of legislative moves in the UK, and methods of intervention. This book studies the social characteristics of drugs use and the real life issues that strategies are seeking to deal with, looking at drug use as a global phenomenon and at visible ethnic minority issues in problematic drug use. Drugs, Victims and Race also examines the typical way in which drug trials are conducted, including the barely hidden assumptions of police, prosecutors, lawyers, and others.
