Details

When Britain banned the lucrative export of opium from Imperial India to China, organized criminals were quick to develop an illegal trade in narcotics. Using government files and personal letters Tim Newark reveals the extent to which gangsters exploited global trade routes, including those made secure by the British Empire itself, and how they became the setting for a turf war involving Shanghai smugglers, American drugbusters and Afghan criminal gangs.
