    First published in 1934, International Narcotics Control is concerned with dangerous drugs solely as a subject of international administration. The ultimate questions that this study seeks to answer bear upon the form and function of the international organisms which have been set up to deal with drug traffic. What relation shall the function of a body bear to the method of its appointment, to its composition, and to source of its responsibility? What type of organism will secure the best response from national administrations? What should be the method of contact between national and international bodies? The answers to questions such as these can be found in this study.

    Divided into two parts, the book brings important things like the establishment and the work of the Opium Advisory Committee, the origin and functioning of the Permanent Central Opium Board; and the control of raw opium production in India, former Yugoslavia, Turkey, and Persia. This is an important historical reference work for scholars and students of criminology.
