Meth is perfect: Manufacturing hope in the late-industrial USA.

Anthropologist Jason Pine examines the transformative powers of meth in post-industrial America - on a population of workers left behind by work, as an industrial poison in a long series of industrial poisons in our environment, and a way to be alive under a system that doesn't care about killing us.

Jason is author of The Alchemy of Meth: A Decomposition from University of Minnesota Press.
