The Real Dope: Social, Legal, and Historical Perspectives on the Regulation of Drugs in Canada, edited by Edgar-André Montigny (Toronto:University of Toronto Press, 2011)
AbstractIn The Real Dope: Social, Legal, and Historical Perspectives on the Regulation of Drugs in Canada, Edgar-Andre? Montigny brings together a broad range of recent writing on a wide variety of drugs. The collection is well worth reading for the insights it provides into Canada’s socio-legal historical experience of the regulation of different psychoactive substances and for its documentation of the wealth of expertise coalescing in this area of research. This subject matter has inspired much critical analysis and scholarly debate about the role of academics in informing policy discussions about drug use and support for liberal drug policy reform. The present contribution is unique in its broad coverage of different “types” of drugs in different eras, and in its accessible, coherent presentation of historical material. Each chapter stands both alone and as an asset to its larger contemporary relevance, as interpreted by authors drawn from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds.
