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 862 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 )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 228 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."--Jacket
