Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

America's black market is much larger than we realize, and it affects us all deeply, whether or not we smoke pot, rent a risque video, or pay our kids' nannies in cash. In Reefer Madness the best-selling author of Fast Food Nation turns his exacting eye on the underbelly of the American marketplace and its far-reaching influence on our society. Exposing three American mainstays — pot, porn, and illegal immigrants — Eric Schlosser shows how the black market has burgeoned over the past several decades. He also draws compelling parallels between underground and overground: how tycoons and gangsters rise and fall, how new techonology shapes a market, how government intervention can reinvigorate black markets as well as mainstream ones, and how big business learns — and profits — from the underground.

Reefer Madness is a powerful investigation that illuminates the shadow economy and the culture that casts that shadow.

Synopsis:

Schlosser explores three prominent and little understood features of globalization - drugs, pornography and migrant labour. He traces the history of the contemporary war on drugs from its origins in Reagan's social conservatism through to its profound impact on civil society.

Synopsis:

The bestselling author of "Fast Food Nation" explores three highly conspicuous and contentious strands of modern society: drugs, pornography and migrant labour. Split into three sections, the book evaluates America's history, attitude and politics and provides an eye-opening review of American culture. "Schlosser's views have sparked a storm" "The Observer"
