Description

Neste livro corajoso, escrito como denúncia e manifesto, Johann Hari rastreia a história do proibicionismo para acusar a hipocrisia moralista das autoridades estatais.

Engajado contra as calamidades da repressão, o jornalista e escritor Johann Hari investigou a fundo o paradoxo do proibicionismo neste livro-reportagem. Sem negligenciar os perigos do consumo de narcóticos, que devem ser objeto de políticas médico-sociais semelhantes às do álcool e do tabaco, o autor suíço-britânico denuncia os enormes prejuízos socioeconômicos causados pelo massacre de consumidores e vendedores postos na ilegalidade.
Dos morros cariocas às montanhas suíças, passando por EUA, Canadá, México, Uruguai e sua Grã-Bretanha natal, Hari corporifica um balanço realista do problema. O livro mostra como a guerra transformou os países na rota do tráfico e tem obliterado um debate honesto sobre as verdadeiras origens da adição.

"Maravilhoso, impossível de largar." - Noam Chomsky

"Narrativa eletrizante e jornalismo de alto nível." - Naomi Klein

"O livro de Hari é o antídoto perfeito para a guerra às drogas, uma das injustiças morais menos discutidas de nossos tempos." - Glenn Greenwald

"As histórias neste livro são de cair o queixo: horripilantes, hilárias, incríveis. E o fato de que sejam todas verdadeiras é tão fascinante quanto perturbador e revoltante." - Stephen Fry
