Smuggling: Seven Centuries of Contraband by Simon Harvey
Smuggling conjures up images of romance and rebellion. Moving beyond this popular conception, Smuggling: Seven Centuries of Contraband presents the bigger picture of this clandestine trade. It focuses on the involvement of powerful political, economic, scientific and cultural interests in smuggling, and how these have affected the history and politics of the world. This is in large part a story of globalization, but one told, for the first time, through smuggling.
