This paper examines the US discursive war on drugs against China in the context of changing US–China relations. It focuses on two schemes. Scheme I is that in the 1950s state actors in the United States portrayed Communist China as a source country; and Scheme II is that the fentanyl-related opioid crisis exploding in 2017 in the United States was allegedly attributed to China.

We present a new, more transnational, networked perspective on corruption. It is premised on the importance of professional intermediaries who constitute networks facilitating cross-border illicit finance, the blurring of legal and illegal capital flows, and the globalization of the individual via multiple claims of residence and citizenship. This perspective contrasts with notions of corruption as epitomized by direct, unmediated transfers between bribe-givers and bribe-takers, disproportionate...
