Speed: Its History and Lore

Speed: Its History and Lore Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Drugs are both vilified — in newspaper headlines and public health broadcasts — and glorified — in film, music and fashion. They continue to fascinate and horrify, in equal measure, and remain perhaps the issue of the twentieth century.

This series will tell rite story of drug misuse. Covering four drugs — heroin, cocaine, amphetamines and ecstasy — it will trace their history, and describe their invention or discovery, generally for honorable reasons, and their transition to illegal and 'recreational' use. Each book will explain how and why the drug has come to occupy the position it does in today's world.

Synopsis:

This series will trace the history, describe the invention or discovery, generally for honorable reasons, and the transition to illegal and 'recreational' use.
