Patrick Winn - Hello, Shadowlands: Inside the Meth Fiefdoms, Rebel Hideouts and Bomb-Scarred Party Towns of Southeast Asia — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, September 12, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Southeast Asia’s tremendous economic growth has spawned an equally large boom in the region’s criminal underworld. In this prodigious work of investigative reporting, Winn, since 2008 a Bangkok-based journalist focusing on crime, introduces some of the major figures of this $100 billion trade that deals in narcotics, animals, and people. Writing with the immediacy of a thriller, Winn follows the activities of both large and small criminal rings, tracking the peddling of fake birth control pills in Manila, the brutal fate of drug-addicted meat thieves in Vietnam, the cut-throat $31 billion methamphetamine traffic that runs throughout the area, and more. As he conveys the vast human suffering these activities incur, Winn persistently questions why the West has failed to take action.
