HIS 343 - Latin Am & Drug Trade
Latin America and the Drug Trade
Prerequisites: None

This course will examine the transformation of the Latin American drug trade from the mid-nineteenth century to the present as cocaine and cannabis made their way, in ever greater quantities, north to the United States and east to Europe. Over time, the traffic in illegal drugs came to provide extraordinary profits and spawned the creation of highly successful, and often very violent, cartels. We will focus on the social and political transformations these brought to the region, as well as on how they contributed to shape foreign relations, especially with the United States.
