Ecstasy and other "club drugs," originally created for medical purposes, have been used recreationally at least since the 1980s. This anthology traces the history of Ecstasy and the associated dance-all-night "rave" culture; the book also presents the legal and social controversies surrounding club drug use.
"New to the 'History of Drugs' series is Katherine Swarts' CLUB DRUGS, a consideration of MDMA, LSD, Ecstasy and other drugs promoted in social settings. A little over 200 pages of detail provides history mixed with plenty of health and social insights."
