Professor Andreas (not the 19th century astronomer!) is an expert on illicit cross-border activities. His past research includes fieldwork in Latin America, Western Europe, and the Balkans, but currently he is writing a book on the political history of smuggling in America. The book’s tentative title is Smuggler Nation: How Illicit Trade Made America (this reporter thinks he should keep the title).
