Summary

The American Pipe Dream is a supplemental book for courses in criminology, social problems, urban studies, substance abuse, and social deviance. The book focuses on the impact of crack on inner-city populations, targeting such issues/groups as crime, women, the homeless, HIV, race/ethnicity, and juveniles. American Pipe Dream is the only book of its kind appropriate for classroom use.
Introduces crack from a historical perspective, tracing it back to before it was first reported in the literature in the 1970s. Shows the consequence of the introduction of crack in the inner-city at a time of a shrinking economic base, rising unemployment, and diminishing quality of life. Discusses the high addiction liability, the rivalries in crack distribution networks that have turned some inner-city communities into dead zones, and the involvement of youth in the crack cocaine business. Examines the chemistry and psychopharmacology of crack.
