Dope Menace

The Sensational World of Drug Paperbacks: 1900 - 1975


by Stephen J. Gertz

Feral House, Port Townsend, WA. Oversized paperback (6 X 10), 220 pages. Color cover illustrations throughout. Big, slick flashy book that illustrates the outlandish coverage given to the drug culture. From the earliest paper covered pubs through the eighties. About 30 pages of text does a pretty good job of outlining the authors, cover artists and major titles. Many of the illustrations are full-page. Recommended.
