正人君子所諱言的藥物,在歷史上的力量有多大?

  一八八一年間,一位西班牙醫生接生了一個死嬰,他狠狠吸了口雪茄朝嬰兒臉上一噴,本來死寂的嬰兒開始抽動,接著臉部一扭,哭出聲來。這嬰兒即是畢卡索。

  為什麼咖啡、菸草和大麻在世界各地都有供應,而檳榔和咖特(阿拉伯茶的萃取物)卻不然?為什麼酒和菸是合法的,而海洛英與古柯鹼就是非法的?是什麼力量在推動這些改變精神狀態的物資的貿易,而這些物資的貿易又怎會形成如今這樣龐大而光怪陸離的模式——正常使用與異常濫用、醫療用與消遣用、合法商用與非法禁用的相互交錯?

  本書從頭詳述這些效果愈來愈強之藥物是如何取得的,並將各種藥物——不論是茶葉、可樂果、鴉片、安非他命——如何被發現、交易與圖利的過程放大特寫,是藥物史觀的第一部世界史。

  從社會與生物的角度說明影響精神狀態的物資為何具有誘惑力的同時,作者追蹤出大眾化藥物進入全球貿易主流的來龍去脈。商人與殖民地栽種者如何致力於擴大全世 界的供應量、降低價格、吸引手頭並不寬裕的百萬計消費者走進市場,從而將藥物消費徹底平民化,舉凡以上種種,作者都一一予以揭露。

  對於當年的歐洲人如何利用酒來誘迫原住民拿出獵得的動物皮毛來進行交易,並將俘虜賣入奴隸市場換錢買酒,甚至把這些原住民被騙得割土讓地,而殖民帝國的君主又如何利用藥物課稅所得的金錢作為發動戰爭與擴張勢力的經費,讀者也將歷歷在目。

  本書也將說明此種暴利剝削為何在近一百年來逐漸式微,如何向管制與禁止的政策低頭,在這過程中,經濟與文化的考量又如何對政策發揮影響力,進而劃分出哪些藥物是可以合法供應的,哪些純屬醫療使用,哪些又是全面禁用的。

  本書探討深入,見識均衡,文字雅潔,是迄今有關精神作用藥物流通史最完備的一部著作,堪稱橫跨世界史與藥物史兩個領域的必讀傑作。它為一個經常流於資訊不足或熱過頭的話題提供了寬廣的探究、理性的判斷以及戲而不謔的幽默。
