About the author:
Arnold S. Trebach, Ph.D., J.D. is a professor emeritus of American University, an attorney, and author of major award-winning books such as The Great Drug War (Macmillan Publishing, 1987; updated in 2005 by Unlimited Publishing LLC), and Fatal Distraction (Unlimited Publishing LLC, 2006). He is a legendary drug policy pioneer. He founded the Drug Policy Foundation in 1986 and led it until 1997, work that resulted in his consideration for a Nobel Peace Prize. Trebach has been called the "Father of the Modern Drug Policy Reform Movement," the "Shadow Drug Czar," and much less favorable appellations by opponents. His peripatetic research for these books allowed him to launch rational reform strategies, grounded in reality.

The Heroin Solution

Authored by Arnold S. Trebach

"Eloquent and persuasive." -The New York Times

"A blockbluster." -Publishers Weekly

This is the story of one of the world's most feared drugs. Based upon a probing exploration of hidden facts about heroin, it includes a comparison of how it is dealt with in America and Britain. The initial release of this book by Yale University Press evoked a flood of positive reviews around the world, along with debate about the propriety of prescribing heroin to addicts. The practice was not adopted in America, but continued in Britain. Hopefully, this new edition from Unlimited Publishing LLC will provoke renewed debate on all aspects of the failed American-led war on drugs, including the continuing prohibition of heroin in medical practice, for cancer patients and addicts alike.
