Drug Hate and the Corruption of American Justice

Synopsis

The hatred of drugs, according to this book, is the axis of politics that has fundamentally shifted the nation's policy format--from the progressive orientation that dominated from the time of Roosevelt to the Sixties, to the punitive orientation that emerged during the Nixon presidency and continues to this day. This triumph of the political use of drug hate is simultaneously a disaster in policy consequences as it corrupts the criminal justice system, exacerbates class inequality, drains public resources, and denies the public their Constitutional heritage. Sadofsky Baggins shows that the political success of the domestic war has overwhelmed the policy failure in the nation's deliberations.
