Writing Opportunity: War on Drugs Book Chapter

Looking for an opportunity to share your knowledge and experience teaching some of the complexities of the War on Drugs? Kimber Quinney (CSU-San Marcos) and Amy Sayward (Middle Tennessee State) are editing a volume for the Understanding and Teaching series at University of Wisconsin Press on teaching contemporary American history. The volume will covers the years from Reagan to Trump and, as you can imagine, they would like to include an entry on the War on Drugs.

Each entry will be around 5,000 words and the idea is to summarize the major debates about a particular topic and develop a lesson plan rooted in primary sources to illustrate those controversies. The editors would like to have a chapter by the end of this summer to add to the volume.

If you’re interested in contributing, please reach out to Matt Pembleton (mrpemb@american.edu) for more information or directly to the editors at kquinney@csusm.edu and Amy.Sayward@mtsu.edu.
