Editorial Reviews

Review

"Susan Boyd has done it again! In Drug Films she provides all interested in the human community’s exploration and use of drugs, with cinematic revelations about Hollywood’s collaboration with the government in controlling human inventiveness in expanding consciousness and developing analgesics." - Dennis Sullivan, Institute for Economic and Restorative Justice

"Fear of drugs has been carefully cultivated in myth and propaganda for over a century. The construction and manipulation of that fear is why punitive prohibition persists despite its savage failures. Susan Boyd's important new book shows how film has played a starring role in this drug drama. Her insightful analysis of so many classic movies is so well written and entertaining you hardly notice that it is a work of deep scholarship, about drug problems themselves as well as their cinematic representations." -- Craig Reinarman, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Santa Cruz, author of Crack In America
