The American disease : origins of narcotic control by David F Musto( Book )

35 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 3,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The American Disease is a classic study of the development of drug laws in the United States. Supporting the theory that Americans' attitudes toward drugs have followed a cyclic pattern of tolerance and restraint, author David F. Musto examines the relations between public outcry and the creation of prohibitive drug laws from the end of the Civil War to the present day. This third edition contains a new chapter and preface that cover the renewed debate on policy and drug legislation from the end of the Reagan administration to the present Clinton administration."--Jacket

Drugs in America : a documentary history( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most Americans would be surprised to learn that large quantities of beer were brought over on the Puritan ships and that the hallowed Puritans were fond of drink. How many today realize that hemp was once one of our most lucrative cash crops encouraged by President John Adams and promoted by the Agriculture department? Or that cocaine, opium and heroin had several waves of popularity in this century and the last? Drugs and alcohol have been with us from the start. So have attempts to control or eliminate their use. In the first anthology of its kind, renowned drug policy expert David Musto chronicles the rise and fall and rise again of the most popular mind altering substances in the United States: alcohol, marijuana, cocaine and opiates. In the section on alcohol we hear the Reverend Lyman Beecher, prominent radical abolitionist and father of Harriet Beecher Stowe, thundering against the evils of alcohol in 1826. We read medical documents that show how the first stirrings of concern about about what is now termed fetal-alcohol syndrome in 1910 turned public opinion against drinking and helped move the country toward Prohibition. The sections on illegal drugs contain surprises as well. With accessible, jargon-free introductions this anthology puts drug and alcohol use at the center of American culture. At this critical point in the "war on drugs" if we do not appreciate our drug and alcohol history we may become captive to the powerful emotions that lead to draconian repression, exaggeration, or apathy and silence.--From publisher description

A survey of the American Observatory Movement, 1800-1850 by David F Musto( Book )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The rapid construction of American observatories began in the third and fourth decades of the nineteenth century following several earlier, unsuccessful attempts to construct a permanent observatory. After the year 1830 or so, observatories were built in increasing numbers by private individuals, colleges, communities and the Federal government. Interest in the study of this period arises both from the eventual success of the general movement which led to some notable observatories, as well as from the dramatic failures which illustrate the reception of this basic science in early nineteenth-century America. In some instances failure resulted from the reliance on a community's financial support which ended with the loss of scientific control of an observatory's activities. Financial support from communities, however, was also responsible in large part for the magnitude of productive observatories where invariably the control of public supported equipment rested among an educational institution or professional astronomers. The American observatory movement developed at first independently of the Federal government primarily because the majority of congress interpreted the Federal constitution as prohibiting direct aid to foster the sciences."
