By Christopher B.R. Smith

Examining the interdependent nature of substance, area, and subjectivity, this ebook constitutes an interdisciplinary research of the intoxication indigenous to what has been termed "our narcotic modernity." the 1st part – Drug/Culture – demonstrates how the physique of the addict and the social physique of the town are either inscribed through "controlled" substance. Positing habit as a "pathology (out) of position" that's particular to the (late-)capitalist city panorama, the second one part – Dope/Sick – conducts a critique of the existing pathology paradigm of dependancy, providing instead a theoretical reconceptualization of drug dependence within the phrases of "p/re/in-scription." Remapping the successive levels or stages of our narcotic modernity, the 3rd part – Narco/State – delineates 3 fundamental eras of narcotic modernity, together with the modern urban of "safe"/"supervised" intake. utilizing an experimental, "intra-textual" layout, the fourth part – Brain/Disease – mimics the feel, kingdom or scape of intoxication accompanying every one permutation of narcotic modernity within the interchangeable phrases of drug, dream and/or illness. Tracing the parallel evolution of "addiction," the (late-)capitalist cityscape, and the pathological undertaking of modernity, the 4 components of this ebook therefore jointly represent a users’ consultant to city space.
