Book Reviews  

'A unique and gripping book.' - Andrew Marshall, author of the best selling "The Trouser People."

'Mr. Takano's account of everyday life with the people of the Wa State was extraordinary...... I believe "The Shore Beyond Good and Evil" is an educational tool to understand the opium trade in the "Golden Triangle."'

California Narcotic Officers' Association

'Whether as a travelogue, a sociopolitical treatise, or simply as an eminently good read, this book is highly recommended.'

The Daily Yomiuri, July 21, 2002

I-S Magazine, March 15, 2002
