Peter Andreas shows that smuggling has played a pivotal and too often overlooked role in the birth, westward expansion, and economic development of the United States, while anti-smuggling campaigns have dramatically enhanced the federal government's policing powers. The great irony, Andreas tells us, is that a country that was born and grew up through smuggling is today the world's leading anti-smuggling crusader.
