While everyone now enjoys this exploitative genre for its campy kitsch, gloriously bad writing and outlandish misinformation, pulp paperback books were once a transgressive medium with a perversely seductive quality. Dope Menace collects hundreds of fabulously lurid and collectable covers, from xenophobic turn-of-the-century tomes about the opium trade to the beatnik glories of reefer smoking to the spaced-out, psychedelic 60s.
