How Illicit Trade Made America

Peter Andreas

  • The first book about the history of smuggling in America from the colonial era to the present.
  • Provides a provocative new twist on America's founding, expansion, and rise as a global power.
  • Counters today's overly alarmist accounts of borders as under siege and illicit globalization as out of control.
