Event Details

WaterFire Symposium w/Peter Andreas


Join us at the WaterFire Arts Center with author Peter Andreas speaking on his new book: “Killer High: A History of War in Six Drugs”

“Ingeniously plotted, briskly written, and strikingly illustrated, Killer High delivers a kaleidoscopic trip through the history of drugs and war. Peter Andreas looks at the drug-war relationship from every angle: how combatants and noncombatants used drugs; how wars were fought through, for, or against drugs; and how wars shaped the fates of drugs, often speeding their rise as global commodities.”

—David Courtwright, author of Forces of Habit and The Age of Addiction

Peter Andreas is the John Hay Professor of International Studies at Brown University. He joined the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University in the fall of 2001, and holds a joint appointment with the Department of Political Science. Previously, Andreas was an academy scholar at Harvard University, a research fellow at the Brookings Institution, and an SSRC-MacArthur Foundation Fellow on International Peace and Security.



Join us at the WaterFire Arts Center for a series of public dialogues curated by Symposium Books and WaterFire. This series of talks, panels, and readings will cover the most pressing topics facing our society today, from environmentalism and urbanism to science and visual arts.
