9 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 1,555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this revelatory account of the CIA's secret fifty-years effort to develop new forms of torture, historian Alfred W. McCoy uncovers the deep, disturbing roots of recent scandals at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo. Far from aberrations, as the White House has claimed. A Question of Torture shows that these abuses are the product of a long-standing covert program of interrogation."--Jacket

Policing America's empire the United States, the Philippines, and the rise of the surveillance state by Alfred W McCoy ( )
13 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 1,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
At the dawn of the twentieth century, U.S. Army occupied Manila and plunged into a decade-long pacification campaign. Armed with technology from America's first information revolution, the U.S. colonial regime created modern police and intelligence units. In Policing America's Empire Alfred W. McCoy shows how this imperial control slowly crushed Filipino revolutionary movement with firepower, surveillance, and incriminating information. Even after Washington freed its colony, it would intervene in Philippines for next half century using it as a laboratory for counterinsurgency and rearming local security forces for repression. Trying to create a democracy in Philippines, the United States unleashed undemocratic forces that persist to present day. Security techniques bred under colonial rule were not contained. Migrating homeward through personnel and policies, these innovations helped shape a new federal security apparatus during World War I. Once established under pressures of wartime mobilization, this American system of public-private surveillance persisted in various forms for fifty years, as a matrix that honeycombed U.S. society with active informers, secretive civilian organizations, and government counterintelligence agencies. In each succeeding global crisis, this covert nexus expanded its domestic operations, producing new contraventions of civil liberties--Publisher's description

The politics of heroin : CIA complicity in the global drug trade by Alfred W McCoy ( Book )
12 editions published between 1991 and 2003 in English and held by 1,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Zgodovinski prikaz ilegalne proizvodnje in trgovine heroina, ki danes že zavzema globalne razsežnosti, med drugim odkriva naravno privlačnost med obveščevalnimi službami in kriminalnimi sindikati, katero pogojuje skupna značilnost prikritega (so)delovanja izven običajnih poti civilne družbe. Ameriškim diplomatom in agentom CIA je vpletenost in sokrivdo za razvoj ilegalne trgovine s heroinom (in drog nasploh) moč pripisati na raznih nivojih. Vse večja uporaba heroina v Ameriki kaže na neuspešno vladno politiko in uradno ameriško hipokrizijo v metodah reševanja enega največjih svetovnih družbenih problemov

War on drugs : studies in the failure of U.S. narcotics policy ( Book )
2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the United States declared its "war on drugs" in the early 1980s, cocaine addiction rates have increased, "crack wars" have become an urban phenomenon, heroin use has multiplied, U.S. prisons have become overstuffed with convicted street users, and the Third World's production of narcotics has skyrocketed. U.S. drug policy failures are legion, and the essays in this volume explain why. One of the most pervasive reasons, which is addressed by several contributors to this book, is that U.S. intelligence organizations have long abetted the international traffic in narcotics as they carried out their cold-war missions. This point is rigorously argued and documented in the essays focusing on Latin America, Southeast Asia, and Pakistan. Among other themes explored is the notion that drug policy has been formulated without paying sufficient attention to the history of narcotics as a global commodity subject to the same stimuli as other goods produced in some of the world's most impoverished nations. In addition, U.S. trade policy has been almost willfully counter-productive. Closing U.S. markets to licit agricultural goods from these nations often stimulates the production of narcotics. With contributions from historians, criminologists, sociologists, political scientists, journalists, and policy analysts, the book provides a complete survey of U.S. narcotics policy in relation to Latin America's cocaine traffic and Asia's heroin trade
