LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Chicago.: The University of Chicago Press.. 2004.. Black and white photographic plates, xi + 319pp, notes, bibliography, index, dustjacket. To this day, the perception persists that China was a civilisation defeated by imperialist Britain's most desirable trade commodity, opium - a drug that turned the Chinese into cadaverous addicts in the iron grip of dependence...In a stunning historical reversal, the book tells a different story of the relationship between opium and the Chinese. They reveal that opium actually had few harmful effects on either health or longevity. Opium was even used as a medicinal panacea in China before the availability of aspirin and penicillin. But as a result of the British effort to eradicate opium, the Chinese turned form the relatively benign use of that drug to heroin, morphine, cocaine, and countless other psychoactive substances. Narcotic Culture provides abundant evidence that the transition from a tolerated opium culture to a system of prohibition produced a 'cure' that was far worse than the disease.
