Valium. Paxil. Prozac. Prescribed by the millions each year, these medications have been hailed as wonder drugs and vilified as numbing and addictive crutches. Where did this "blockbuster drug" phenomenon come from? What factors led to the mass acceptance of tranquilizers and antidepressants? And how has their widespread use affected American culture? David Herzberg addresses these questions by tracing the rise of psychiatric medicines, from Miltown in the 1950s to Valium in the 1970s to Prozac in the 1990s. The result is more than a story of doctors and patients. From bare-knuckled marketing campaigns to political activism by feminists and antidrug warriors, the fate of psychopharmacology has been intimately wrapped up in the broader currents of modern American history. Beginning with the emergence of a medical marketplace for psychoactive drugs in the postwar consumer culture, Herzberg traces how "happy pills" became embroiled in Cold War gender battles and the explosive politics of the "war against drugs"—and how feminists brought the two issues together in a dramatic campaign against Valium addiction in the 1970s. A final look at antidepressants shows that even the Prozac phenomenon owed as much to commerce and culture as to scientific wizardry. With a barrage of "ask your doctor about" advertisements competing for attention with shocking news of drug company malfeasance, Happy Pills is an invaluable look at how the commercialization of medicine has transformed American culture since the end of World War II.

The Happy Pill

(From the book): The Happy Pill: Portrait of a Middle-Class Homeowner During the Fallout of Economic Meltdown takes a revealing tour along the road to global economic failure. This illuminating elixir of stories told by a former homeowner and small businessman travels from KFC-infused Kentucky to incense-rich Oman, and from coffee farming communities to the cafés of New Zealand to illustrate the common thread shared by neocons, rednecks, politicians, angry turtles, Trustafarians, mass media and real estate agents—they all lend a hand in destroying the middle class. These stories provide the obvious, but mysteriously missing link between the low-interest prescription pill ploy to the bogus micro-histories that initiated irresponsible spending on wars and the resulting downgrading of America's credibility. The conclusive fiasco from the era of corporate fascism is that only the top one percent can now get ahead. In this bubble of megalomaniac media madness, as Americans vicariously attach themselves to notions of false wealth and false enemies, will we fail as voters to initiate real change? The Happy Pill delivers a special blend of narrative, political satire and media analysis to speak from a wide perspective about a modern tale of Good vs. Evil.(Publisher's note): The Happy Pill uses a creative, narrative style to convey the realities about the past 12 years of the decay of American culture and the resulting financial meltdown fiasco in a way that wealthy, mainstream, popular media figures still refuse to do. The book offers a critical examination of the forces behind the huge transfer of wealth that was executed by the same non-progressive politicians who are still hard at work in their ongoing efforts to impoverish Americans while we sit idly ignoring the numbers behind the nation's debt and expenditure miasma. The Happy Pill focuses not only on the author's personal journey as a squashed real estate investor caught in the drama of a corporatized government's manipulation of an economy, but also on the demise of the middle-class lifestyle and the resulting penalties that financial meltdown imposes on real people. From this real world perspective, the telltale, firsthand stories reveal the truth about how cheap interest and non-progressive politics have done damage to America and the global economy.
