BACK COVER #
Here is the definitive, comprehensive book on cocaine, increasingly the drug of choice among both dabblers and serious drug users. The authors have set out to combat the surprisingly wide spread ignorance about this nearly mythological snow-white substance -- once famous, among other things, as a stimulant to Sigmund Freud.

BLURBS #
"The book contains perhaps the most complete assemblage of cocaine information yet. It is one of the most penetrating and stimulating studies of illicit drugs in our culture that I have come across."
-- The New York Times Book Review
