Overview

This is the story of one of the world's most feared drugs. Based upon a probing exploration of hidden facts about heroin, it includes a comparison of how it is dealt with in America and Britain. The initial release of this book by Yale University Press evoked a flood of positive reviews around the world, along with debate about the propriety of prescribing heroin to addicts. The practice was not adopted in America, but continued in Britain. Hopefully, this new edition from Unlimited Publishing LLC will provoke renewed debate on all aspects of the failed American-led war on drugs, including the continuing prohibition of heroin in medical practice, for cancer patients and addicts alike.

Arnold S. Trebach, Ph.D., J.D. is a professor emeritus at American University, an attorney, an author of award-winning books, and a legendary drug policy pioneer. He founded the Drug Policy Foundation in 1986 and led it until 1997, work that resulted in consideration for a Nobel Peace Prize. Trebach has been called the Father of the Modern Drug Policy Reform Movement, the Shadow Drug Czar, and much less favorable appellations by opponents. His peripatetic research for this book was an essential part of his own education that allowed him to launch rational reform strategies, grounded in reality.
