Nancy Campbell on "America’s First Prison for Drug Addicts"

Over at Neuroanthropology’s new site on PLoS Blogs, Daniel Lende has a very nice post about The Narcotic Farm — a book about Lexington, Kentucky’s infamous center for research and treatment of drug addiction — co-authored by Nancy Campbell, JP Olsen, Luke Walden.  We ran a post about the book when it was first published a couple of years ago, but the nice thing about Dan’s new post is that it includes an interview with Nancy Campbell — a professor in Science and Technology Studies at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute — about her work with her co-authors on the book and the associated documentary film.

Campbell has a number of publications on addiction research throughout the 20th and 21st centuries including:

Nancy Campbell. 2007. Discovering Addiction: The Science and Politics of Substance Abuse Research. University of Michigan Press.

Nancy Campbell. 2006. ““A new deal for the drug addict”: The Addiction Research Center, Lexington, Kentucky,” Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences, 42(2): 135-157.

Nancy Campbell. 2010. “Toward a critical neuroscience of ‘addiction,'” BioSocieties, 5: 89-104.
