In “Drug Trafficking and Organized Crime in the Americas: Major Trends in the Twenty-First Century,” noted expert Bruce Bagley examines adaptations and trends in the illicit drug economy over the last several decades. He explores the increasing globalization of drug trafficking and consumption as well as the unintended consequences of the U.S.-led ‘war on drugs.’  As regional support for alternative anti-narcotics policies has grown, Bagley provides essential background about the changing dynamics of the drug economy,the proliferation of drug smuggling routes, and the fragmentation of organized criminal networks across sub-regions.
