A solid historical primer with a critical-cultural slant
le 23 mai 2014 - Publié sur Amazon.com
I bought this book as part of a grad-level project on the recent rhetoric surrounding the campaign to legalize marijuana in my home state. My goal: I was hinging my thesis on recent campaigns that appeared to reverse the historical "othering," marginalization and criminalization of marijuana users, and I needed a historical text that provided the background that told the story of America's historical relationship with drugs. This book fit the bill perfectly. And, it turned out to be a pretty interesting read on the entangled histories of race, drugs, crime, Western expansion and religion in the United States. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in crime history, race and its relationship to the justice system, Western history or even, unexpectedly, the ways media has functioned in the construction of the national identity.

This masterpiece can't be summarized in a simple review. Whatever your feelings about marijuana prohibition, you'll find this book supremely informative. The historical research is wonderfully detailed, but the authors present it in a nice narrative form so that the book reads like a mystery novel. They make insightful connections about the history of cannabis laws, attitudes about immigration, arrest records, the personal lives of members of law enforcement, and conflict between the social classes. They are candid about the potential limitations of their own objectivity, but everything they present is documented. Read it, think, and you'll find yourself agreeing with them.

A Complete History of U.S. Prohibition
le 4 janvier 2001 - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is the most comprehensive look at marijuana and drug prohibition available! It was written by members of Nixons very own committee delegated to the task of researching marijuana, it's history, effects, and whether the drug policy at the time was a sensible one. They found that it was not, and suggested a serious rethinking of marijuana laws. However, instead of listening to his own research committee Nixon decided to start the now infamous war on drugs! Though this book only follows prohibition up to the early 70s, as that's when it was published, it contains the essential history of marijuana prohibition which most people are not familiar with. It discusses the general atmosphere of prohibition that hovered over the early 20th century, and how that affected marijuanas legal status. It also discusses the mutation by law makers of the word "narcotic," the inconsistent stances of Drug Czar Anslinger, and the horribly racist tactics used to criminalize marijuana (As well as the horribly racist reasons!)! This book is a must read for EveryOne!
