Note on Courtwright book and how to use it as a reference: The Courtwright book provides valuable historical information about how global forces, such as capitalism, have shaped the potency and availability of drugs (and how drugs in turn have shaped world history). However, the book also uses language to describe people that often glosses over important distinctions (for example, referring to “Amerindians” rather than a specific tribe), and can be offensive (e.g., referring to Chinese laborers as “coolies”). It also frequently glosses over how other factors, such as colonialism and fascism, have played an often sordid role in the history of drugs (for example, testing on prisoners in Nazi Germany). When using Courtwright as a source for quizzes and assignments, please reflect on how you might use different language to describe groups of people and to acknowledge these important forces.
