Summary: The American Disease is a classic study of the development of drug laws in the U.S. Supporting the theory that Americans' attitudes toward drugs have followed a cyclic pattern of tolerance and restraint, author David Musto examines the relations between public outcry and the creation of prohibitive drug laws from the end of the Civil War to the present day. Originally published in 1973, with an expanded edition in 1987, this third edition contains a new chapte ...show morer and preface that cover the renewed debate on policy and drug legislation from the end of the Reagan administration to the present Clinton administration.

Friendly, former Director of Seminars on Media and Society, Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.. "Mandatory reading....An important work of historical clarification....Musto tells a rich and significant story, enlivened by the foibles, myopia and hysteria of several generations of Americans, including this one." --The New York Times Book Review.
