9780415278997: Heroin Century
Review:

'The book is written with insight and humour. It provides an informative platform for any future debate about heroin and how we can move away from the current impasse.' - John Witton, Drug Link

'This fascinating account should be read by anyone who wants to stay informed on the drugs debate.' - New Statesman

'If you read no other book on drug misuse, read this one ... this is an intelligent book that requires intelligent reading ... at the very least you will be well informed but at most you will be greatly entertained.' - British Journal of General Practice

'This level-headed, informative and witty book ... should be read by every politician, parent and physician.' - The Economist

From the Publisher:

Heroin is a drug that myths are made of. Whether smuggled in the stomach of a camel or used as the ultimate symbol of lifestyle chic, no drug has been more argued over and legislated against, no drug has been more subject to misinformation and moral panic.
Heroin Century sets the record straight. It contains a wealth of historical and medical information about this drug which made its first appearance as a miracle medicine over a hundred years ago and makes recommendations for its future in the twenty-first century. Evidence shows that heroin is dangerous principally because it is illegal. The authors argue that a more relaxed relationship between society and the drug would benefit both the economy and public health and safely.
Individual chapters describe the history of heroin production; the makeup of heroin and evolving methods of use; the spread of heroin and international efforts at control; typical "career" patterns of users, ranging from occasional recreational use to destructive dependence; the subjective experience of taking heroin; the association between heroin and crime; the use of heroin in medicine and its effects on physical health; the history of the treatment of heroin dependence; and likely changes in heroin use in the future. The authors have drawn on literary and artistic sources as well as the large pool of scientific literature to compile a comprehensive and fascinating account of this world-changing drug.

Heroin Century makes available a wealth of information about the history, chemistry, pharmacology and medical aspects of heroin in a form accessible to anyone who wishes to participate in the contemporary debate bout society's attitude to drugs.
