Drug War Capitalism
The drug war is less about cocaine or marijuana than it is about social, economic, and territorial control. In Drug War Capitalism, Dawn Paley lays bare the mechanisms through which state and corporate interests are advanced under the pretext of fighting drugs in Latin America. North of the Rio Grande, bank accounts and prison cells are filled to bursting, and billions are made in the arms trade. But the focus here is on the south, where territory is cleared for foreign direct investment and the extractive industries through policy changes linked to the drug war, and an accompanying mix of militarisation and paramilitarisation. The violence and forced displacement that results s experienced most acutely by poor and working people and migrants, commonly in resource rich or geographically strategic areas.
