Pakistan wants to end the drug war

One of Pakistan’s biggest newspaper, The Express Tribune, positively reviews my book, Pills, Powder and Smoke: Inside the Bloody War on Drugs:

Released last year, Antony Loewenstein’s book titled, Pills, Powder, and Smoke: Inside The Never-Ending, Bloody War On Drugs is a detailed investigation into the individuals, officials, activists and traffickers caught up in the long-spanning War on Drugs in the West. Why this book is especially fascinating is Loewenstein’s coverage of the drug war from the frontlines across the globe from London to remote African villages. This insightful account reveals how the War on Drugs has slipped past its early goals and its agenda has nothing to with ending drug use or addiction but rather about controlling markets, territory and people.
