"Over the past decade, use of the illicit drug heroin has been rising steadily in the United States. Heroin overdose deaths have also spiked, increasing by more than 50 percent between 2007 and 2016, according to the most recently available data from the Drug Enforcement Administration. Heroin use was once relatively rare in the United States, but drug cartels from Latin America have been steadily shipping large quantities into the country. The demand for heroin has also been fueled because it is a cheaper alternative to prescription opioid painkillers that provides a similar high. This book examines the facts about the ongoing heroin crisis. It provides information about the drug cartels and their role in supplying this deadly drug, how heroin is distributed in American communities large and small, and the dangerous effects of the drug on its users" -- provided by publisher.

Courageous women of the Vietnam War : medics, journalists, survivors, and more

April 17, 2018
Atwood, Kathryn J., author.
Chicago, Illinois : Chicago Review Press Incorporated, [2018]
xiv, 225 pages: illustrations, maps ; 17cm
Xuan Phuong, young revolutionary -- Geneviève de Galard, "I only did my duty" -- Le Ly Hayslip, "Freedom is never a gift" -- Bobbi Hovis, witness to history -- Kay Wilhelmy, American survivor -- Jurate Kazickas, "What's a woman like you doing out here?" -- Iris Roser, Australian relief worker -- Anne Koch, "I knew in my heart that I had to go" -- Dang Thuy Tram, communist field surgeon -- Lynda van Devanter, "Why do they have to die?" -- Kate Webb, captive journalist -- Joan Baez, protest singer -- Tracy Wood, "They're the story" -- Kim Phuc, running from war.
One of just a handful of women reporting on the Vietnam War, Kate Webb was captured by North Vietnamese troops and presumed dead -until she emerged from the jungle waving a piece of white parachute material after 23 days in captivity. Le Ly Hayslip enjoyed a peaceful early childhood in a Vietnamese farming village before war changed her life forever. Brutalized by all sides, she escaped to the United States, where she eventually founded two humanitarian organizations. Lynda Van Devanter was an idealistic young nurse in 1969 when a plane carrying her and 350 men landed in South Vietnam. Her harrowing experiences working in a combat zone hospital would later serve as inspiration for the TV series China Beach. In these pages readers meet these and other brave women and girls who served in life-threatening roles as medics, journalists, resisters, and revolutionaries in the conflict in Vietnam. Author Kathryn J. Atwood presents a clear introduction to each of five chronological sections, guiding readers through the social and political turmoil that spanned two decades and the tenure of five US presidents. Each woman's story unfolds in a suspenseful, engaging way, incorporating plentiful original source materials, quotes, and photographs. Resources for further study, source notes and a bibliography, and a helpful map and glossary round out this exploration of one of modern history's most divisive wars, making it an invaluable addition to any student's or history buff's bookshelf.
