Dopeworld : adventures in the global drug trade

Vorobyov, Niko, (author.).

Just as Anthony Bourdain did for the world of food, in Dopeworld, writer Niko Vorobyov travels the globe to find out more about the war on drugs and how it affects global politics and our day-to-day lives. Dopeworld is a bold and intoxicating journey into the world of drugs. From the cocaine farms in South America to the streets of Manila, this book traces the emergence of psychoactive substances and our intimate relationship with them. With unparalleled access to drug lords, cartel leaders, street dealers and government officials, Vorobyov attempts to shine a light on the dark underbelly of the drug world. At once a bold piece of reportage and a hugely entertaining and perverse travelogue, with echoes of Gomorrah and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Dopeworld reveals how drug use is at the heart of our history, our lives, and our world
