The making of a drug-free America : programs that work by Mathea Falco ( Book )
9 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 903 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There are few problems as persistent in American life today as drugs. Despite the "solutions" put forth by our country's leaders - seize more ships, impose harsher jail sentences, pursue foreign drug lords - the government's policies have failed to reduce drug abuse and drug crime. Today, as illegal drugs continue to disrupt our schools, our workplaces, and our communities, we face once again this crucial question: Does anything work? It is easy to get discouraged by the magnitude of America's drug habit and by the failures of the multibillion-dollar "war on drugs," but Mathea Falco argues that we need not give in to such despair. One of our nation's leading experts on drug abuse, Falco showcases effective prevention, treatment, and law enforcement strategies from across the country to reveal what really works in the fight against drugs. Success stories include a school program in Kansas City that cuts youngsters' drug use by half; a neighborhood group in Washington, D.C., that is driving drug dealers off the streets; an anti-drug coalition in Miami that is creating new political priorities; and a treatment program in Los Angeles that keeps people off cocaine. For concerned citizens, parents, and government officials alike, The Making of a Drug-Free America offers workable courses of action that are already changing lives and transforming communities

Burma, time for change : report of an independent task force sponsored by the Council on Foreign Relations by Council on Foreign Relations ( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 225 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Recognizing that democracy and the NLD cannot survive in Burma without the help of the United States and the international community, the Council-sponsored Independent Task Force on Burma sounds a clarion call for change. In response to the government's recent crackdown on the democratic opposition, the Task Force urges the United Nations to call for the immediate release of Aung San Suu Kyi and all political prisoners, and to impose sanctions on Burma, including bans both on new in-vestment in Burma and on the importation of goods produced in Burma. The Task Force report also offers specific recommendations for U.S. policy in four areas: humanitarian assistance; promoting democracy, human rights, and the rule of law; narcotics control policy; and refugees, migrants, and internally displaced persons." "Led by Mathea Falco, president of Drug Strategies and former assistant secretary of state for international narcotics matters, this bipartisan Task Force comprises members with a wide range of experience in international business, law, government, media, academia, public health, and human rights advocacy, among other areas. Its recommendations are intended to inform U.S. government action as well as to increase U.S. cooperation with other countries, especially in Asia, to bring about a long overdue political, economic, and social transformation of Burma."--BOOK JACKET
Rethinking international drug control : new directions for U.S. policy : report of an Independent Task Force ( Book )
5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Comparing Western European and North American drug policies : an international conference report by Peter Reuter ( Book )
5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Western Europe, the United States, and Canada in the last decade, illegal drugs have become a significant public policy issue. There is a growing interest in comparing and understanding the experiences of different nations. This report offers such a comparison. The United States is more adversely affected by illicit drugs than are any of the other nations considered here. It views the drug problem primarily as a crime problem for which tough law enforcement is the appropriate response. In some Western European nations, the health consequences of drug addiction are emphasized, and there has been a reluctance to use the criminal law against users. Germany, Norway, and Sweden have viewed drug use as a moral issue, using criminal law against users, but not nearly as aggressively as has the United States. This report summarizes the deliberations of officials and experts representing eight nations who participated in a December 1991 meeting on drug policy held in Bellagio, Italy. It also draws on a May 1991 conference of researchers from Western Europe and North America held in Washington, D.C

Burma : time for change by Council on Foreign Relations ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Burma is one of the most tightly controlled dictatorships in the world. For more than four decades, Burma's 50 million people have been oppressed by military rulers who have systematically impoverished the country's natural and human resources. The country is home to a genuine democracy movement, but it is brutally suppressed by the military government. Recognizing that democracy and the National League for Democracy (led by Aung San Suu Kyi) cannot survive in Burma without the help of the United States and the international community, this report sounds a clarion call for change
