About this book
Based on previously classified government information and interviews with key officials and drug market insiders in Nigeria, this book is the first ever in-depth analysis of the international and domestic origins of illegal drug control in Africa, exploring the formulation and implementation of Nigerian drug policy between 1985 and 2010. During this period, the country came to be seen as a hub in the global drug trade and the domestic policy set in motion to tackle this perception escalated into Africa’s most repressive and long-lasting anti-drug campaign. The book provocatively argues that Nigeria's drug war was not driven by an understanding of the country's drug problems but rather by political calculations made in Nigeria, the US and at the UN.

This meticulously researched and wonderfully lucid book is the first thorough study of Africa’s complex drugs trades in a national context. The findings are startling. Nigeria’s drugs connections are vividly described, but so too is the rhetoric and hype of the international crime control agencies...As Klantschnig reveals in this path-breaking book, the winners and losers in Nigeria’s war on drugs are not what they may seem.

David M. Anderson, University of Oxford

Crime, Drugs and the State in Africa is an extraordinarily timely study. Appearing at a moment when drug cartels and drug markets are expanding very aggressively in Africa, this book is the first thorough examination of the drugs trade on the continent from a historical perspective... This is an essential book for those interested in both contemporary African politics and the global drugs trade.

Charles Ambler, University of Texas at El Paso

History of International Relations, Diplomacy, and Intelligence is a peer-reviewed book series which seeks to publish high-quality, pioneering works in the history of international relations, broadly conceived. In addition to disseminating original research in traditional areas addressed by this field, including diplomacy, national security, economic conflict, and the role of individuals, this series also embraces the ongoing expansion of the study of international relations into such areas as culture, race, gender, sexuality, and the environment. Its books will encompass as well the often-overlooked role of intelligence and intelligence agencies in shaping foreign relations.


History of International Relations, Diplomacy, and Intelligence actively intends to further engagement between the scholarly community and the policy-making one, by demonstrating the continued importance of past patterns, practices, and policies for today’s pressing debates.


History of International Relations, Diplomacy, and Intelligence includes the subseries New Directions in Diplomatic History.
Both series have independent editorial teams that work closely together.

Authors/Editors are cordially invited to submit proposals and/ or full manuscripts to the series editor or to the publisher Hendrik van Leusen.
