The politics and economics of drug production on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border : implications for a globalized world by Amir Zada Asad( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2019 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important study contains a detailed socio-economic and political description of a region where opium and heroin are both produced and consumed. By carefully relating drug production, trade and consumption to a relatively inaccessible area on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, the book teaches us not only about the area - itself fascinating enough, particularly since it came into global prominence following the terrorist attack of 11 September 2001 - but also about the global dimensions of the problem." "The book provides an ethnography of drug production in the tribal areas of north-west Pakistan and analyses the key socio-economic aspects of drug production. It also considers the role of major intelligence agencies in the military use of the drug, with particular reference to the Iranian and Afghan conflicts. Much that is revealed in this study applies also to other less developed countries where drug production is of economic importance. Proposing a viable policy for the global community to tackle the problem, Amir Zada Asad reaches out to teachers and students in many social science disciplines, to social welfare and medical professionals, as well as to anti-narcotics practitioners and to campaigners and researchers alike."--BOOK JACKET

Whilst they retain a recognisable common core, probation systems round the world are enormously varied, and many are in a state of rapid change. Probation Round the World is a study of probation in ten countries, ranging from the well-resourced and heavily professionalised services of Britain and the old Commonwealth to the reliance on lay-supervisors in Japan and the community-based system which has recently been set up in Papua new Guinea. Probation Round the World resulted from collaborative research conducted by the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) and the British Home Office. The first part of the book comprises a review of the development and convergence of probation within the Civil Law and Common Law traditions. The second part describes the origins and functions of systems in the ten countries, drawing out salient differences and similarities. It will provide invaluable reading for students of criminal justice and criminology and for professionals working in probation managment and government
