Fernandez, Humberto (1998) Heroin. Center City MN: Hazelden .

We know all about heroin - and yet, beyond the myth of its powers and dangers, how much do we really know about this evermore pervasive drug? The definitive reference on the drug's history, pharmocology, psychology, and sociology, this groundbreaking work also offers a spell-binding account of heroin's power and persistent allure. Animated with vivid personal stories and vignettes, Heroin puts a human face on the long and complex story behind this notorious drug.
