Chasing the scream : the first and last days of the war on drugs by Johann Hari( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"January, 2015 will mark a century of the war on drugs in the United States: one hundred years since the first arrests under the Harrison Act. Facing down this anniversary, Johann Hari was witnessing a close relative and an ex-boyfriend bottoming out on cocaine and heroin. But what was the big picture in the war on drugs? Why does it continue, when most people now think it has failed? The reporter set out on a two-year, 20,000-mile journey through the theater of this war--to find out how it began, how it has affected people around the world, and how we can move beyond it. Chasing the Scream is fueled by dramatic personal stories of the people he meets along the way: A transsexual crack dealer in Brooklyn who wanted to know who killed her mother, and a mother in Mexico who spent years tracking her daughter's murderer across the desert. A child smuggled out of the Jewish ghetto during the Holocaust who helped unlock the scientific secrets of addiction. A doctor who pushed the decriminalization in Portugal of all drugs - from cannabis to crack. The title itself comes from a formative story of Harry Anslinger, first commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, sent as a boy to the pharmacy for a neighbor screaming in withdrawal -- an experience which led him to fear drugs without regard to context. Always we come back to the front lines in the U.S., where we instigated the war and exported it around the globe, but where change is also coming. Powerful, propulsive, and persuasive, Chasing the Scream is the page-turning story of a century-long mistake, which shows us the way to a more humane future"--

Tras el grito : Un relato revolucionario y sorprendente sobre la verdadera historia de la guerra contra las drogas by Johann Hari( )

1 edition published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El periodista Johann Hari se embarco en un viaje epico de tres anos de duracion y cerca de 50.000 kilometros con el fi n de desvelar los secretos de la guerra contra las drogas; y de esa manera pudo constatar que existe una disparidad asombrosa entre lo que nos han transmitido y lo que en realidad sucede. Para exponer tan reveladores descubrimientos, Hari recurre a la narracion de historias reales de diversas personas que han visto transformadas sus vidas por culpa de esta guerra. Entre ellas encontramos desde un traficante transexual que busca a su madre en Brooklyn hasta un joven sicario mexicano que busca una salida a su encrucijada. El libro comienza con algo sorprendente que descubrio el propio autor: que en el inicio de la guerra contra las drogas se encuentra el acoso y asesinato de Billie Holiday por parte del hombre que lanzo esta cruzada; y concluye con la historia de un osado doctor que consiguio que su pais legalizase todas las drogas, desde el cannabis hasta el crack, con resultados mas que notables
