Health Communications, Inc., Deerfield Beach: 1988. s Softcover. Good condition. 
"I used to drink," writes John Bradshaw, "to solve the problems caused by drinking. The more I drank to relieve my shame-based loneliness and hurt, the more I felt ashamed. Shame begets shame."

13 JORDAN, DAVID C. Drug Politics: Dirty Money And Democracies.
University of Oklahoma Press, Norman: 2016. Volume 1 in International and Security Affairs. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Drug Politics is an enlightening new book by a man who knows this disturbing and dangerous subject. A former United States ambassador to Peru, David C. Jordan has testified before the U.S. Senate and House Foreign Relations committees and has consulted with various government security organizations. His account of government protection of the criminal elements intertwined with local and global politics challenges many of the assumptions of current drug policies. Using examples from South America, Mexico, Russia, and the United States, Jordan shows that the narcotics problem is not merely one of supply and demand. Jordan argues that many national and international financial systems are dependent on cash from money laundering, and some governments are far more involved in protecting than in combating criminal cartels. David C. Jordan served as United States Ambassador to Peru (1984-86). He is currently Professor of International Relations and Comparative Government, Woodrow Wilson Department of Government and Foreign Affairs, University of Virginia, and President of the New World Institute, Charlottesville, Virginia.

16 PIERCE, GRETCHEN & ÁUREA TOXQUI (EDITORS). Alcohol In Latin America: A Social And Cultural History.
University of Arizona Press, Tucson: . Latin American Studies Series. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Aguardente, chicha, pulque, vino—no matter whether it's distilled or fermented, alcohol either brings people together or pulls them apart. Alcohol in Latin America is a sweeping examination of the deep reasons why. This book takes an in-depth look at the social and cultural history of alcohol and its connection to larger processes in Latin America. Using a painting depicting a tavern as a metaphor, the authors explore the disparate groups and individuals imbibing as an introduction to their study. In so doing, they reveal how alcohol production, consumption, and regulation have been intertwined with the history of Latin America since the pre-Columbian era. Alcohol in Latin America is the first interdisciplinary study to examine the historic role of alcohol across Latin America and over a broad time span. Six locations—the Andean region, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Guatemala, and Mexico—are seen through the disciplines of anthropology, archaeology, art history, ethnohistory, history, and literature. Organized chronologically beginning with the pre-colonial era, it features five chapters on Mesoamerica and five on South America, each focusing on various aspects of a dozen different kinds of beverages. An in-depth look at how alcohol use in Latin America can serve as a lens through which race, class, gender, and state-building, among other topics, can be better understood, Alcohol in Latin America shows the historic influence of alcohol production and consumption in the region and how it is intimately connected to the larger forces of history. "This expansive approach reveals several unifying themes and identifiable trends in recent scholarship on alcohol."—Latin American Research Review "Highly recommended."—CHOICE "An engaging and illuminating volume that reveals a great deal about Latin American social, political, and economic life while also educating us about specific beverages and their meanings across time."—Journal of Social History "The potent cocktail of essays served up by Gretchen Pierce and Áurea Toxqui both excite the senses and, at times, blur the vision."—Latin American Review of Books "This pioneering collection of essays will help shape a new field of historical research for Latin Americanists."—David M. Fahey, editor of Alcohol and Drugs in North America: A Historical Encyclopedia "Alcohol in Latin America moves beyond the focus on the negative connected with alcohol consumption to examine the ways that everyday people understood alcohol consumption; how it tied them together; how it was tied to their local, regional, or newly emerging national identities; and the ways in which they used alcohol to resist oppression."—Andrae M. Marak, co-author of At the Border of Empires: The Tohono O'odham, Gender, and Assimilation, 1880-1934
