About The Book
An evaluation of US Drug War policy in the context of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the US Bill of Rights. Analysis plus more than 20 case stories to illustrate how current US policy is a direct violation of the approved international standard for human rights, including the right to privacy, to medicine, to family, to culture, to religion, and to property. Furthermore it catalogs violations of due process and the increasing use of cruel and unusual punishments in the form of mandatory minimum sentences and establishing the death penalty for non-violent drug offenses. This official-looking book is 8-1/2 by 5-1/2 inches, 62 pages, black and white pages with a blue, black and white cover bearing the UN logo. There are photos of prisoners and casualties of the Drug War throughout, and appendices include a resource guide, a list of established human rights, and a Drug War Truce that includes peace negotiations between the government and people. It is a smaller spin off of the book, Shattered Lives: Portraits from the US Drug War, similarly based on the Human Rights and the Drug War photo exhibit, with some new information.
