'After the War on Drugs: Blueprint for Regulation' re-published in Italian

We are pleased to announce that Transform's groundbreaking 2009 book 'After the War on Drugs: Blueprint for Regulation' has recently been re-published in Italian. Translated, redesigned and published in Italy by publishers Ediesse - it is available to buy in hard copy online here (12 euros).  The book has a new preface by Sandro Del Fattore and Giuseppe Bortone, and foreword by Franco Corleone and Grazia Zuffa*. We are particularly grateful to Grazia whose hard work made this new edition possible.

Transform made the copyright material freely available to the publishers under its existing creative commons licence as they were willing to translate, redesign and publish the book, and crucially make it available as a free pdf as of April 2012.

As full Spanish translation of Blueprint will also be published soon. Translations of the executive summary are already available (as pdfs) in Portuguese (also in print), Spanish (also in print), Italian and Russian.

The original English version remains available in print or as a free pdf download.

*The new Foreword and Introduction are the responsibility of the Italian publishers and authors, not Transform.
