Berkeley, CA: University of California Press, 2000, 335 pp., $25.00. The dirt jacket of Michael Massing’s The Fix summarizes his thesis in bold crimson letters:
Under the Nixon Administration, America Had an Effective Drug Policy. WE SHOULD RESTORE IT. (Nixon Was Right).” That is a pretty remarkable declare to make regarding an administration that won office in big part thru the “Southern Strategy” that had at its coronary heart Nixon’s assertion of a “War on Drugs” and whose policies created the cocaine epidemic that brought about such a lot of new issues a decade later.
At most, I might agree that the Nixon management’s pursuit of a basically bad policy-protected some profitable efforts which every subsequent administration has devalued. This changed into now not due to the fact Nixon or his closest advisers had been right approximately drug policy; however due to the fact Nixon was greater interested in overseas coverage troubles and his benign forget about domestic coverage allowed some of the advantageous traits to blossom in the midst of the mire of incompetence and corruption that characterized his
Presidency. Perceptively concluding that “rules being formulated in Washington nowadays endure little relation to what’s taking place on the street,” Massing tries to depict the actual results of drug policy at the road level. Unfortunately, he does not depend upon the epidemiologic evidence or examines the cautious analyses conducted via researchers like myself who have systematically tested what’s simply taking place on the road. Instead, he is based on the journalist’s usual — and generally deceptive — device of dramatic anecdotes.
