Coca Prohibition in Peru

The University of Arizona Press

The first book to provide a historical overview of coca. In tracing the arguments of the participants in the coca debates during the last four centuries, it surveys the role of the leaf in Peru's sociopolitical history, focusing on coca usage as a source of controversy for the policy makers among the coastal elites who have dominated Peruvian politics and economics since the Spanish conquest.
