1 Extra pure. Voyage dans l'économie de la cocaïne - Roberto Saviano
Auteur : Roberto Saviano
Genre : Science politique
"Se plonger dans les histoires de drogue est l'unique point de vue qui m'ait permis de comprendre vraiment les choses. Observer les faiblesses humaines, la physiologie du pouvoir, la fragilité des relations, l'inconsistance des liens, la force colossale de l'argent et de la férocité. L'impuissance absolue de tous les enseignements mettant en valeur la beauté et la justice, ceux dont je me suis nourri. Je me suis aperçu que la coke était l'axe autour duquel tout tournait. La blessure avait un seul nom. Cocaïne. La carte du monde était certes dessinée par le pétrole, le noir, celui dont nous sommes habitués à parler, mais aussi par le pétrole blanc, comme l'appellent les parrains nigérians. La carte du monde est tracée par le carburant, celui des mœurs et des corps. Le pétrole est le carburant des moteurs, la coke celui des corps." Après Gomorra, Roberto Saviano poursuit

The autobiographical Eight Years in Cocaine Hell (1902) recounts in shockingly straightforward style the transformation of Annie C.

Thomas ended up making a living by giving backpackers tours of the prison – he became a fixture on the backpacking circuit and was named in the Lonely Planet guide to Bolivia. When he was told that for a bribe of $5000 his sentence could be overturned, it was the many backpackers wh

Auteur : Zorka Domic
Genre : Sciences sociales
Il est important pour nous de suivre l'histoire de la feuille de coca, et de bien noter les différences de son usage selon les contextes culturels. En particulier, on mesure bien les fonctions mystiques, religieuses et sociales de la feuille de coca mais, également, son rôle dans l'affirmation, depuis l'époque des conquistadores, d'une identité à tout un groupe de peuples. En réaction, les conquérants blancs n'ont eu de cesse de trouver des arguments pour dire que la plante est mauvaise et ceci, paradoxalement, pendant que les médecins découvraient les vertus de la même plante. Une fois de plus, loin des simplifications abusives, un problème apparaît comme complexe, contradictoire et ambigu. Nous sommes loin du réductionnisme et du sensationnalisme.

A new translation of the Italian novelist’s cautionary comedy of excess and despair in 1920s Paris—“this little romp is always a pleasurable one” (Publishers Weekly).
 
Paris, 1920s. The City of Light is a dizzy and decadent bohemia for Tito Arnaudi, a young Italian medical student turned bon vivant journalist. To escape the moralizing of his Italian hometown—or perhaps it was merely a whim—Tito got on a train to Paris without so much as a letter of introduction. Soon enough, he finds employment inventing lurid scandals and gruesome deaths to newspapers.

19 Cocaine - Marc Olden
Auteur : Marc Olden
Genre : Criminologie
A meticulous account of the greatest drug scourge the country has ever seen

Before crack, there was cocaine. In 1972, New Yorkers bought more powdered cocaine than heroin, and they paid dearly for it. Pimps, rock stars, UN delegates, and high school students all turned on with snow. Some used casually, and some threw their lives away for its fleeting high. The drug’s devotees showed their allegiance with a golden coke spoon necklace—a sign of the wealth required to maintain a habit when the drug sold for as much as seventy-five dollars a hit. They used it to party, to work, and to have sex. They snorted it, shot it, and rubbed it on their gums. And more and more, they killed and died for the sake of the priceless white powder.

In this staggering exposé, Marc Olden gets to the heart of New York’s cocaine underworld, painting an exhaustive picture of the

Pablo Escobar was one of the most terrifying criminal minds of the last century.

In 1982, she interviewed Pablo Escobar on her news program, and soon after, they began a discreet—albeit stormy—romantic relationship. During their five-year affair, Escobar would show Vallejo the vulnerability of presidents, senators, and military leaders seeking to profit from the drug trade. From Vallejo’s privileged

Cocaine is big business and getting bigger. Governments spend millions on an unwinnable war against it, yet it's now the drug of choice in the West. How did the cocaine economy get so huge? Who keeps it running behind the scenes?

In The Candy Machine Tom Feiling travels the trade routes from Colombia via Miami, Kingston and Tijuana to London and New York. He meets Medillin hitmen, US kingpins, Brazilian traffickers, and talks to soldiers and narcotics officers who fight the gangs and cartels. He traces cocaine's progress from legal 'pick-me-up' to luxury product to global commodity, looks at legalization programmes in countries such as Switzerland, and shows how America's anti-drugs crusade is actually increasing demand.

Cutting through the myths about the white market, this is the story of cocaine as it's never been told before.

When Karamo Brown first auditioned for the casting directors of Netflix’s Queer Eye, he knew he wouldn’t win the role of culture expert by discussing art and theater. Instead he decided to redefine what “culture” could—and should—mean for the show. He took a risk and declared, “I am culture.”

Karamo believes that culture is so much more than art museums and the ballet—it’s how people feel about themselves and others, how they relate to the world around them, and how their shared labels, burdens, and experiences affect their daily lives in ways both subtle and profou

Jung's early business of flying marijuana into the United States from the mountains of Mexico took a dramatic turn when he met Carlos Lehder, a young Colombian car thief with connections to the then newly born cocaine operation in his native land. Together they created a new model for selling cocaine, turning a drug used primarily by the entertainment elite into a massive and unimaginably lucrative enterprise-- one whose earnings, if legal, would have ranked the cocaine business as the sixth largest private enterprise in the Fortune 500.

37 Cocaine Craving As a Predictor of Treatment Attrition and Outcomes After Residential Treatment for Cocaine Dependence *. - Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs
Auteur : Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs
Genre : Forme et santé
CRAVING, WHICH WE WILL REFER TO as urge to use, is a concept that is central to some models of relapse in addiction research (e.g., Baker et al. 1987b; Ludwig and Stark, 1974; Marlatt, 1978), although not to others (see Rohsenow and Monti, 2001). The term "urge" is being used because dictionaries and colloquial use define craving as a strong desire or longing, whereas terms such as "urge" or "desire" permit assessment of a full range of the state and decrease ambiguity (Kozlowski et al., 1989; Kozlowski and Wilkinson, 1987). In addition to the definition above, craving has variously been described as a cognitive correlate of a subclinical conditioned withdrawal syndrome (Ludwig and Stark, 1974) or of classically conditioned responses (Baker et al., 1987a); as anticipation of the reinforcing effects of alcohol (Marlatt, 1978); as a drug-acquisitive motivational state (Baker et al., 1987b)

40 The Crack Cocaine Diet - Laura Lippman
Auteur : Laura Lippman
Genre : Romans et littérature
New York Times bestselling author Laura Lippman has been hailed as one of the best crime fiction writers in America today, winning virtually every major award in the genre. The author of the enormously popular series featuring Baltimore P.I. Tess Monaghan as well as three critically lauded stand-alone novels, Lippman now turns her attention to short stories—and reveals another level of mastery.

Lippman sets many of the stories in this sterling anthology, Hardly Knew Her, in familiar territory: her beloved Baltimore, from downtown to its affluent suburbs, where successful businessmen go to shocking lengths to protect what they have or ruthlessly expand their holdings, while dissatisfied wives find murderous ways to escape their lives. But Lippman is also unafraid to travel—to New Orleans, to an unnamed southwestern city, and even to Dublin, the backdrop for the lethal clash

41 Ecuador: A Low-Threat Environment for Drug Trafficking - Cocaine Trade, Rafael Correa, Cartels, Andes Narcotics, Mexico, Transnational Crime Organizations, U.S.-Ecuadorian Relations, Money Laundering - David N. Spires
Auteur : David N. Spires
Genre : Amérique latine
This excellent report has been professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction. Ecuador's role in the cocaine trade has historically differed from its drug-trafficking neighbors. This Andean country traditionally serves as a transshipment hub for illegal narcotics, precursor chemicals, and a place to launder money. Over the past several years, however, Ecuador appears to have become a rising actor in the cocaine trade. Seizures are increasing and so is the presence of transnational criminal organizations. Why is Ecuador now experiencing an increase in cocaine seizures? What factors explain this emergence? What is attracting transnational criminal organizations, such as the Mexican cartels, the Russian Mafia, and the Chinese Triads, to Ecuador? Furthermore, how has Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa's administration, its policies, and its relationship with th

Buckskin
42 Buckskin Cocaine - Erika T. Wurth
Auteur : Erika T. Wurth
Genre : Nouvelles
Fiction. Native American Studies. Erika T. Wurth's BUCKSKIN COCAINE is a wild, beautiful ride into the seedy underworld of Native American film. These are stories about men maddened by fame, actors desperate for their next buckskin gig, directors grown cynical and cruel, and dancers who leave everything behind in order to make it, only to realize at thirty that there is nothing left. Poetic and strange, Wurth's characters and vivid language will burn themselves into your mind, and linger.

"This is the raw stuff, the loud stuff, the hard stuff, the true stuff. It'll infect you in a way you won't realize at first, too. Not until days later, when you can't remember if you read this or you lived it. Trust me: you did both."— Stephen Graham Jones

"Buckskin Cocaine is a big voicey chorus of drugs, sex, booze, movies, and most of all the drumbeat of want, need

Originally published in 1960 by co-authors Arthur J. Beckhard and William D.

He introduced several new operations, including the radical mastectomy for breast cancer and along with William Osler (Professor of Medicine), Howard Atwood Kelly (Professor of Gynecology) and William H. Welch (Professor of Pathology), was one of the “Big Four” founding professors at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Throughout his professional life, he was addicted to cocaine and later also to morphine, which were not illegal during his time. The addictions were a direct result of Halsted’s use of himself as an experimental subject, in investigations on the effects of cocaine as an anesthetic agent.

Genre : Asie
This is the story of the most successful cocaine dealers in the world: Pablo Escobar Gaviria, Jorge Luis Ochoa Vasquez, Carlos Lehder Rivas and Jose Gonzalo Rodriguez Gacha.

The $2 billion dollar system eventually became so complex that it required the manipulation of world leaders, corruption of revolutionary movements and the worst kind of violence to protect.

47 From Silver to Cocaine - Steven Topik, Carlos Marichal & Zephyr Frank
Auteur : Steven Topik, Carlos Marichal & Zephyr Frank
Genre : Économie
Demonstrating that globalization is a centuries-old phenomenon, From Silver to Cocaine examines the commodity chains that have connected producers in Latin America with consumers around the world for five hundred years. In clear, accessible essays, historians from Latin America, England, and the United States trace the paths of many of Latin America’s most important exports: coffee, bananas, rubber, sugar, tobacco, silver, henequen (fiber), fertilizers, cacao, cocaine, indigo, and cochineal (insects used to make dye). Each contributor follows a specific commodity from its inception, through its development and transport, to its final destination in the hands of consumers. The essays are arranged in chronological order, according to when the production of a particular commodity became significant to Latin America’s economy. Some—such as silver, sugar, and tobacco—were activ

Political
49 Political Cocaine - Art Rude
Auteur : Art Rude
Genre : Éducation
American consumers demand choice. The assortment of products in American stores is beyond belief to anyone from the Third World. So why are only two choices for anything political acceptable to Americans?

It seems totally illogical. It reminds me of the illogical change in behavior of an addict. These are people who are normal in seemingly every way yet give up everything and everyone in their lives for a drug which is a short-term high, and self-destructive. How can that be? Research has convinced me it's more than coincidence. In terms of political opinion, it's Political Cocaine.

How did political parties take over the American form of government anyway? There is no provision for them in the Constitution, yet today they control basically all phases of the process of governing in the United States. There must be something that authorized their power. I looked for
