Abstract

Abstract:

George Karandinos tackles the gravest public-health calamity of our age—the opioid crisis. Drawing on ethnographic work he did in the open-air narcotics markets of inner-city Philadelphia, Karandinos reveals the links between the opioid crisis and the War on Drugs, emphasizing that solutions to both must found in the domain of activism and public health—not the carceral state.
