Nicholas Parsons, assistant professor of sociology, has published a book, "Meth Mania: A history of Methamphetamine," (Lynne Rienner Publishing). In the book, Parsons chronicles the history and mythology of methamphetamine in the United States from the 1940s--when it was hailed as a wonder drug--to the present public health menace that it is today. He examines the emergence of amphetamines; the first scare: speed freaks; the black market; t ice; crystal meth; new panics and new approaches to dealing with the threat of methamphetamines.
