From the 1950s 'girl junkie' to the 1990s 'crack mom', Using Women investigates how the cultural representations of women drug users have defined America's drug policies in this century. In analyzing the public's continued fear, horror and outrage wrought by the specter of women using drugs, Nancy Campbell demonstrates the importance that public opinion and popular culture have played in regulating women's lives. The book will chronicle the history of women and drug use, provide a critical policy analysis of the government's drug policies and offer recommendations for the direction our current drug policies should take. Using Women includes such chapters as 'Sex, Drugs and Race in the Age of Dope'; 'Regulating Adolescents in the Postwar US'; 'Fifties Femininity'; and 'Regulating Maternal Instinct'.

Multivolume collection by leading authors in the fieldReview:
"With wit and tenacity, Nancy Campbell uncovers the surprisingly long historical road of drug policy leading directly to the racialized profile and exploding numbers of today's population of incarcerated women. "Using Women powerfully demonstrates how to engage in public policy debates without remaining captive to the "governing mentalities" that shape the neoliberal state."
-Angela Y. Davis, University of California, Santa Cruz
