Hello, Shadowlands : Inside the Meth Fiefdoms, Rebel Hideouts and Bomb-Scarred Party Towns of Southeast Asia Paperback

Description

Essential to understanding Southeast Asia in the 21st century, Hello, Shadowlands reveals abooming underworld of organised crime across a region in flux- a $100 billiontrade that deals in narcotics, animals and people -and the staggering human toll thatis being steadily ignored by the West. From Myanmar's anarchic hills to the swamplands of Vietnam, jihadis arebeing pitted against brothel workers, pet thieves against vigilantes and methbarons against Christian vice squads. Hello, Shadowlands takes a deep plunge into crimerings both large and small.

It also examines how China's rise and America'sdecline is creating new opportunities for transnational syndicates to thrive. Focusing on human stories on both sides of this crime wave,the acclaimed Bangkok-based broadcaster and journalist PatrickWinn intimately profiles the men and women of the region who are forced tomake agonizing choices in the absence of law.
