1 Cocaïne - Christophe Mouton
Auteur : Christophe Mouton
Genre : Romans et littérature
Né dans une cité de la banlieue parisienne, Tarek, garçon brillant et séduisant, est repéré dès le début de sa scolarité par ses professeurs. À dix-huit ans, grâce à une procédure d'exception, il intègre Sciences-Po sans concours. Constamment renvoyé à son statut de " minorité visible ", il choisit de se tourner vers ce à quoi son physique, son origine et les rues de son quartier, semblaient d'emblée le prédestiner : le trafic de drogue. Mais à la différence de ses camarades d'enfance, il a pour lui le bagage intellectuel acquis durant ses études. C'est ainsi qu'après avoir parfaitement intégré les notions d'offre et de demande, d'approvisionnement, de distribution et de gestion des ressources humaines, il conquiert le marché avec succès, aidé par son fidèle chauffeur-partner, Moussa. Lorsqu'il comprend pourtant, une fois son compte en banque bien rempli, qu

3 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

4 Cocaine - Pitigrilli & Eric Mosbacher

Genre : Lettres

"Cocaine is a brilliant black comedy that belongs on the same shelf as Evelyn Waugh's Vile Bodies and Dawn Powell's The Wicked Pavilion. Pitigrilli is an acidic aphorist and a wicked observer of social folly."—Jay McInerney, author of Bright Lights, Big City and Brightness Falls

"Pitigrilli was an enjoyable writer—spicy and rapid—like lightning."—Umberto Eco

“The name of the author Pitigrilli … is so well known in Italy as to be almost a byword for ‘naughtiness’ … The only wonder to us is that some enterprising translator did not render some of his books available in English sooner.”

‘It won’t happen to me. That’s what I thought when I got on the plane to Venezuela. But it did – I got caught.’

Caught smuggling half a million euros’ worth of cocaine, Paul Keany was sexually assaulted by Venezuelan anti-drugs officers before being sentenced to eight years in the notorious Los Teques prison outside Caracas. There he was plunged into a nightmarish world of coke-fuelled killings, gun battles, stabbings, extortion and forced hunger strikes until finally, just over two years into his sentence, he gained early parole and embarked on a daring escape from South America . . .

Aided by his extensive prison diaries, Keany reveals the true horror of life inside Los Teques: a shocking underworld behind bars where inmates pay protection money to stay alive, prostitutes do the rounds and vast amounts of cocaine are smuggled in for cell-block bosses t

Auteur : Annie C. Meyers

“To the sensitive (cocaine) is soothing, to the stupid it is enlivening, to the exhausted it gives strength and mental vigor. To the sufferers from pain it gives peace…” Dr. T.D. Crothers, 1899

“I never used any other drug but the clear cocaine and I believe that I am the only living person in the world to-day who ever took two hundred grains in twenty-four hours and survived.” Annie C. Meyers

The autobiographical Eight Years in Cocaine Hell (1902) recounts in shockingly straightforward style the transformation of Annie C. Meyers, affluent and well-connected Chicago widow, to junkie, thief, forger, inventor of the ‘Cocaine Dance’, and ultimately authoress of the first drug confessional written by a woman.

14 L'État cocaïne - Zorka Domic
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. Zorka Domic est profondément émue par la misère psychologique des jeunes toxicomanes, mais ceci ne l'empêche pas, au-delà

18 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

Auteur : Aleister Crowley
Genre : Biographies et mémoires
Le Journal d’un drogué est le premier roman qu’écrivit le célèbre magicien Aleister Crowley. Publié en 1922, à une période où l’usage des drogues était moins répandu qu’actuellement, il causa un choc important à ses lecteurs, au point que son éditeur préféra le retirer de la vente et refusa ensuite de le rééditer. Au début du XXIe siècle, alors que l’on connaît mieux les problèmes d’addiction aux drogues et les troubles physiques et sociaux qu’elles occasionnent, le Journal d’un drogué reste un témoignage important des affres que vivent ceux qui se plient à une cure de désintoxication. Mais plus que cela, ce qui fait que ce livre est un ouvrage particulièrement intéressant, c’est qu’il est une présentation, rare et originale, de la communauté créée par Aleister Crowley en Sicile en 1920 : l’Abbaye de Thélème.

Geen liedjes zingen, geen fabels vertellen: een schrijver heeft in de eerste plaats de taak om een verpleger van de samenleving te zijn.' Wie heeft dat ook alweer gezegd, denkt de verteller van Cocaïne; was dat Tolstoj of Gogol? Hoe dan ook - die verteller is toevallig zelf een schrijver, en heeft wel iets anders aan zijn hoofd. Onlangs in de steek gelaten door de liefde van zijn leven, brengt hij zijn dagen slenterend over de straten van Moskou door. Hij heeft niets anders meer dan zijn verbeelding om hem overeind te houden. Hij verbeeldt zich epische gevechten in kroegen, bedeelt zichzelf de rol van held en schurk toe in moordzaken en intriges, en ontvangt plots een uitnodiging om naar Stockholm te reizen: hij heeft de Nobelprijs voor de Vrede gewonnen. Hij is de kwaadste niet, niets bindt hem nog aan Moskou, en stapt op de trein. Daar wacht de schrijver een raadselachtig Nobelprijs

23 Blow - Bruce Porter
Auteur : Bruce Porter
Genre : Criminologie
BLOW is the unlikely story of George Jung's roller coaster ride from middle-class high school football hero to the heart of Pablo Escobar's Medellin cartel-- the largest importer of the United States cocaine supply in the 1980s. 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.

The ride came to a screeching halt when DEA agents and Florida police busted Jung with three hundred kilos of

Machine
24 The Candy Machine - Tom Feiling
Auteur : Tom Feiling
Genre : Sciences sociales
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.

27 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)

Auteur : David N. Spires

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

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

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.

39 By Land, Sea, or Air? A Comparative Analysis of Cartel Smuggling Strategies: Drugs and Cocaine, Subs, Panga Go-Fast Boats and Container Vessels, Cars, Big Rigs, and Tunnels, Human Mule Packers - David N. Spires
Auteur : David N. Spires
Genre : Politique et actualité
This report has been professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction. Cartels are known for their innovative smuggling techniques, across land, sea, or air, which allow them to clandestinely transport drugs across any point of entry into the United States. With this in mind, it is worth asking: why do cartels choose a certain drug smuggling technique over another, which domain is more commonly used and potentially more successful, and what sorts of structural changes would it take to shift from one method or domain to another? When seeking answers, there are several things to take into consideration: law enforcement is limited in funding, personnel, and assets, which creates endless smuggling opportunities for cartels. Additionally, cartels exploit weak law enforcement and judicial systems, as well as corrupt officials in several countries throughout South a

40 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
42 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

44 Cocaine's Son - Dave Itzkoff
Auteur : Dave Itzkoff
Genre : Biographies et mémoires
With sharp wit, self-deprecating humor, and penetrating honesty, New York Times journalist Dave Itzkoff turns a keen eye on his life with the mysterious, maddening, much-loved man of whom he writes, “for the first eight years of my life I seem to have believed he was the product of my imagination.”

Itzkoff’s father was the man who lumbered home at night and spent hours murmuring to his small son about his dreams and hopes for the boy’s future, and the fears and failures of his own past. He was the hard-nosed New York fur merchant with an unexpectedly emotional soul; a purveyor of well-worn anecdotes and bittersweet life lessons; a trusted ally in childhood revolts against motherly discipline and Hebrew school drudgery; a friend, advisor, and confidant. He was also a junkie. In Cocaine’s Son, Itzkoff chronicles his coming of age in the disjointed shadow

Crack Cocaine Kisses and Other Poems is Jeffrey Whitelaw's first published book of poetry.

Auteur : Richard Vetere
Genre : Policier et suspense
New York. Winter. 1980. Behind the glitter of the disco era, the city streets run wild. In countless secret spaces, high stakes poker games fuel an underground economy flush with cocaine, champagne, and call girls. Winners are on top of the world.

And when you owe the mob, you pay—or else. With nowhere to run, Danny is forced to commit unspeakable acts just to stay even. Richard Vetere's gritty novel strips the gloss of the "Godfather" era and lays bare the gritty reality of the subversive blackmarket as Ferraro struggles to free himself of its grip. Vetere (The Third Miracle, The Writers Afterlife) delivers his most riveting work to date, with page-turning action and an insider's view of a hidden culture.
