Introduction: 

The articles on the sub-pages: Illicit Trades, Marijuana Decriminalisation, Caribbean Social Order, Islamic Extremism and Power Relations in the North Atlantic; are the result of my next and present phase of research and writing. The period of writing books is now largely over as you write a book that is always dated even before publication. The way to keep your ideas and research in real time then is to write for publication on the web and I have chosen to do so via blogs and research articles.
