The Narcotic Farm: The Rise and Fall of America's First Prison for Drug Addicts by Nancy D. Campbell, J. P. Olsen & Luke Walden (Abrams / 2008)

'The story of America’s long and deep affair with addictive drugs is incomplete without mention of the legendary federal narcotic hospital in Lexington, Kentucky. The Narcotic Farm tells this story well, and in addition provides a wealth of revealing photographs and documents that speak volumes on what it was like to be a junkie in the mid-twentieth century.' Luc Sante, author of Low Life and Evidence

Good condition hardback with clean, unmarked pages. Dustjacket is intact but shows signs of wear / rubbing and surface scratching along some exterior edges, particularly top edge of spine.
