Reviews

"

Quite thorough in its scope and features theological, legal, racist, and cultural trends as they
related to the war on drugs. . . . Solid historically, important culturally and politically, and eye
opening religiously.

"--Gary Laderman, Goodrich C. White Professor of American Religious History and Cultures, Emory College
"

A superb analysis of one of America's most enduring social problems. Monteith's historical
research, coupled with his astute engagement with theories of religion, make this a
groundbreaking contribution to many fields.

"--Cara Burnidge, author of A Peaceful Conquest: Woodrow Wilson, Religion, and the New World Order
"The American crusade against intoxicants began earlier than you might think. An in-depth reassessment of the war on drugs, with lessons for students of American religion, crime, and white supremacy."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
