504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 385-386) and 
520    The authors employ the techniques of oral history to 
       penetrate the nether world of the drug user, giving us an 
       engrossing portrait of life in the drug subculture during 
       the "classic" era of strict narcotic control. Praise for 
       the hardcover edition: "A momentous book which I feel is 
       destined to become a classic in the category of scholarly 
       narcotic books."--Claude Brown, author of the bestseller, 
       Manchild in the Promised Land. "The drug literature is 
       filled with the stereotyped opinions of non-addicted, 
       middle-class pundits who have had little direct contact 
       with addicts. These stories are reality. Narcotic addicts 
       of the inner cities are both tough and gentle, deceptive 
       when necessary and yet often generous--above all, shrewd 
       judges of character. While judging them, the clinician is 
       also being judged."--Vincent P. Dole, M.D., The 
       Rockefeller Institute. "What was it like to be a narcotic 
       addict during the Anslinger era? No book will probably 
       ever appear that gives a better picture than this one. ...
       a singularly readable and informative work on a subject 
       ordinarily buried in clich & eacute;s and stereotypes."--
       Donald W. Goodwin, Journal of the American Medical 
       Association " ... an important contribution to the growing
       body of literature that attempts to more clearly define 
       the nature of drug addiction. ... [This book] will appeal 
       to a diverse audience. Academicians, politicians, and the 
       general reader will find this approach to drug addiction 
       extremely beneficial, insightful, and instructive. ... 
       Without qualification anyone wishing to acquire a better 
       understanding of drug addicts and addiction will benefit 
       from reading this book." --John C. McWilliams, 
       Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography "This study
       has much to say to a general audience, as well as those 
       involved in drug control." --Publishers Weekly "The 
       authors' comments are perceptive and the interviews make 
       interesting reading." --John Duffy, Journal of American 
       History "This book adds a vital and often compelling human
       dimension to the story of drug use and law enforcement. 
       The material will be of great value to other specialists, 
       such as those interested in the history of organized crime
       and of outsiders in general." --H. Wayne Morgan, Journal 
       of Southern History "This book represents a significant 
       and valuable addition to the contemporary substance abuse 
       literature. ... this book presents findings from a novel 
       and remarkably imaginative research approach in a cogent 
       and exceptionally informative manner." --William M. Harvey,
       Journal of Psychoactive Drugs "This is a good and 
       important book filled with new information containing 
       provocative elements usually brought forth through the 
       touching details of personal experience. ... There isn't a
       recollection which isn't of intrinsic value and many point
       to issues hardly ever broached in more conventional 
       studies." --Alan Block, Journal of Social History.
