Ethan Nadelmann, who has become widely known as an advocate of drug legalization, proves in this book that he is an important scholar of international law enforcement. By casting his study of law enforcement across the borders, he has broken new criminological ground. Nadelmann's study of the development of the tangled, tight, and problematic relationship between U.S. foreign policy and U.S. law enforcement will enlighten, and even fascinate, students in both areas. -Jerome H. Skolnick, University of California, Berkeley"Like a meteorite Ethan Nadelmann has burst upon the academic scene bringing light, heat, and deep impressions. Cops Across Borders opens up a new field of inquiry and must be read by anyone concerned with U.S. foreign policy and criminal justice." -Gary T. Marx, University of Colorado"Nadelmann's outstanding book illuminates with impressive detail a dimension of security policy about which we know far too little, the international activities of national police forces. This book opens up a new area of research for students of international relations." -Peter Katzenstein, Cornell UniversityCops Across Borders is the first book to examine the policies and issues that lie at the intersection of U.S. foreign policy and U.S. criminal justice. Drawing on interviews with nearly 300 U.S. and foreign law enforcement officials in nineteen countries as well as extensive historical and contemporary materials, Ethan Nadelmann examines how and why U.S. law enforcement officials have extended their efforts beyond American borders, how they have dealt with the challenges confronting them, and why their efforts have proved more or less successful. Nadelmann's analysis traces the evolution of U. S. law enforcement activities abroad since the nation's founding. During the nineteenth century, U.S. customs agents collected information on smuggling operations, naval officers tracked illegal slave trading vessels, slave owners tried to recover fugitive slaves
