Show business: Rangoon’s “war on drugs” in Shan State


Investigative report exposing as a charade the Burmese military regime’s “War on Drugs” in Shan State. It provides evidence that the drug industry is integral part to the regime’s political strategy to pacify and control Shan State, and concludes that only political reform can solve Burma’s drug problems. While colluding in and profiting from the drug business, the regime has taken no serious measure to deal with its social impacts. The book is in three parts : 1 - Background of poppy cultivation in Shan State ; 2 - The SPDC’s “war against drugs” in Shan State ; 3 - The drug trade in Shan State today. - (GL)
