About the Author
Helena Hansen is an addiction psychiatrist and anthropologist and Professor of Psychiatry and Anthropology at the University of California, Los Angeles. Jules Netherland is a sociologist and policy advocate and Managing Director of the Department of Research and Academic Engagement at the Drug Policy Alliance. David Herzberg is a historian and Professor of History at the State University of New York at Buffalo.
"Psychiatrist and anthropologist Hansen, policy advocate and sociologist Netherland, and historian Herzberg richly scrutinise drug use and race along multiple axes that include medicine, public policy, and history to emerge with a powerful portrait of precisely how the social construct of race and systemic racism have both created and blinded us to the unequal treatment of Black and white drug users. Through anthropology, personal histories, and nuanced data analysis this troika engages in textured, deeply researched, scholarship."-- "Lancet"
