Blow. Shneef. Flake. Nose beers. White. Dust. Booger sugar. Powder. Stripper salt. Pearl. Uptown. Cocaine–yes, that cocaine–has as many nicknames as it has had various uses over the years. In Assouline’s Cocaïn: History & Culture, one of the premiere publishers sets out to chronicle the substance’s rise not as a party drug in the 70s, but at its true origin as an over-the-counter 19th century ailment cure for everything from stomachaches and cramps to teething. The coca leaf and its byproduct has had a lasting impact on history since it was discovered, enjoyed by and almost destroyed prominent figures like Sigmund Freud and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, among others. How did it become the corrupting force and party drug that modern cinema and society knows it as today? This book, Cocaïn: History & Culture, from author Armand Limnander, tells that story. Told as a sort of visual and visceral examination of the drug itself, this book is one of penultimate tomes about what made cocaine what it is today.
