Smuggler Nation is the first book that retells the story of America and its foreign relations as a series of intense battles over illicit trade. As Andreas argues in this fascinating and provocative account, clandestine commerce-and campaigns to suppress it-has played a vital but too often overlooked role in America's birth, economic and political development, and emergence as a global power.
