The Drug Wars in America, 1940-1973

Tuesday, May 28, 2013, 7 p.m.

Frydl picKathleen Frydl talks about her new book, The Drug Wars in America, 1940-1973.  She will also speak on the topic, “The District and the Origins of the Drug War.” 

The Drug Wars in America argues that the U.S. government has clung to its militant drug war, despite its obvious failures, because effective control of illicit traffic and consumption were never the critical factors motivating its adoption in the first place. 
Ms. Frydl is also the author of The G.I. Bill (2009), which won the 2010 Louis Brownlow Book Award from the National Academy of Public Administration.
