KIRKUS REVIEW

A former investigator of narcotics for the League of Nations, covers Egypt, British India, Persia, French Indo-China, the East Indies, China, Japan, Germany and the U. S., in this story of those who do not ""live out their dreams but dream out their lives"". Material on various drugs, their culture and distribution, on the lack of governmental legislation, on all ramifications of the results of drug taking. Exuberant descriptions of the effects -- a somewhat lurid feel to the whole.
