U.S. Drug Policy, Coca, and Bolivian Politics

I’m doing research for a student note to be published in the Fordham International Law Journal, and found this article (cite: 39 Cal. W. Int’l L.J. 237.) It’s one of the best studies of the relationship between Bolivia and the United States I’ve read, and is doubly interesting because of its focus on coca and the drug trade. The main conclusion is also noteworthy, namely, that the presidency and political phenomena of Evo Morales would not have been possible without the U.S.’s heavy handed anti-drug policy.
