Shattered Lives: Portraits from America's Drug War
This book takes an unflinching look at the human rights violations of U.S. drug policy, based on the award-winning photo exhibit, Human Rights and the Drug War. In the name of the U.S. Drug War, families are being torn apart, children orphaned, and homes and property seized as thousands of first-time, non-violent drug offenders are thrown into prisons, serving harsh sentences of 10, 20 years and longer. Learn how we got here, the costs and the statistics, and what can still be done to bring a just end to what has become America's longest war.
