Drug war : the secret history

Image of item
Book
Drug War is a landmark modern history of the United Kingdom's fight against illegal drugs. It chronicles for the first time the high-level traffickers who drugged Britain, and the secretive agency that trie to stop them: the Investigation Division of HM Customs and Excise. The ID, as it was known, fought a 50-year battle to stem the tide of cannabis, cocaine and heroin arriving by land, air and sea, and to track, arrest and prosecute the smuggling gangs who turned an amateur pastime into a multi-billion-pound trade. The product of more than 100 unique interviews, many with insiders who have never spoken publicly, Drug War is a ground-breaking account of one of the most important topics of our times."--Publisher description.
