Editorial Reviews

Review

"A notable contribution."--The Historian


"Home Grown is a necessary resource for any scholar of drug cultures, drug prohibition, or Mexican studies."--Journal of Historical Geography


"An engaging work of sociocultural history. . . . It deserves a wide reading."--The Americas


"Campos has reconfigured our understanding of the flow of ideas about marijuana."--Hispanic American Historical Review


"You don't have to be a 'pothead' to enjoy and learn from Isaac Campos's pioneering and carefully researched inquiry into the special plant-commodity identified botanically as cannabis. . . . Campos's study comprehensively examines the ecological, sociocultural, and political dimensions of the history of human interaction with a plant."--Southwestern Historical Quarterly


"Campos remedies the scarcity of historical work on the origins of drug prohibition in Latin America while pointing out the need to better understand the causes and consequences of these prohibitions if we are to grasp the current 'War on Drugs.' . . . [This] book is a call to arms."--American Historical Review


"Home Grown is a must read for historians, criminologists, analysts, and policy-makers, alike, especially those interested in understanding the origins of Mexico's current political and social unrest, the cultural underpinnings for marijuana prohibition, or the broader 'War on Drugs.'"--Criminal Law and Criminal Justice Book Review


"Recommended. All levels/libraries."--Choice


"A most welcome and important contribution to the history of marijuana prohibition. It has broadened our understanding of how we got to this place, and it belongs on the book shelf of every serious student of the topic."--Drug War Chronicle

Book Description

"Isaac Campos is, for my money, the best historian at work today on the history of marijuana, and he has written the best book that anyone could read on that topic."--John Charles Chasteen, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
