"This fine book will stand for some time as the standard reference on the subject. The most complete and comprehensive work of its kind, Hep-Cats, Narcs, and Pipe Dreams is also one heckuva good read. Jill Jonnes has simply done a superb job of crafting this immense and important story of America's drug wars."
-- Jeff Leen, co-author of Kings of Cocaine

"Deeply researched and responsibly argued, this vivid narrative tells for the first time how successive generations, cultures, classes, criminal initiatives, and governmental responses have shaped the experience of addiction in America."
-- John Higham, Professor of History Emeritus, Johns Hopkins University
