About the lecturer:

Dr. Paul Gootenberg, Ph.D., is a professor of history and sociology at Stony Brook University (SUNY). A noted historian of global drugs, he reveals our long hemispheric entanglements with cocaine. Since 1910, cocaine's production and marketing chains north have shifted in important ways, leading to ever-larger supplies of the illegal drug and hotspots of violence closer and closer to the United States, including Mexico.
