High : drugs, desire, and a nation of users by Ingrid Walker( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whether drinking Red Bull, relieving chronic pain with oxycodone, or experimenting with Ecstasy, Americans participate in a culture of self-medication, using psychoactive substances to enhance or manage our moods. A "drug-free America" seems to be a fantasyland that most people don't want to inhabit. High: Drugs, Desire, and a Nation of Users asks fundamental questions about US drug policies and social norms. Why do we endorse the use of some drugs and criminalize others? Why do we accept the necessity of a doctor-prescribed opiate but not the same thing bought off the street? This divided approach shapes public policy, the justice system, research, social services, and health care. And despite the decades-old war on drugs, drug use remains relatively unchanged. Ingrid Walker speaks to the silencing effects of both criminalization and medicalization, incorporating first-person narratives to show a wide variety of user experiences with drugs. By challenging current thinking about drugs and users, Walker calls for a next wave of drug policy reform in the United States, beginning with recognizing the full spectrum of drug use practices"--Publisher's description

Jim Leedy, artist across boundaries by Matthew Kangas( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book traces Leedy's progress from his student days in Virginia and New York City, where he met and got to know major artists like Willem de Kooning and Franz Kline, through his controversial stay at the University of Montana and his long sojourn in Kansas City, where, as a widely influential and sympathetic teacher at the Kansas City Art Institute, he has had an impact on American art that until now has not been fully acknowledged. Kangas also discusses Leedy's extensive travels abroad, especially in Japan, Finland, and Norway, where Leedy has exposed students and fellow artists not only to new approaches in ceramic sculpture but also to ideas of the radical avant-garde in installation art and performance."--Jacket
