Did you know that cigars really grow on trees? Or that cigars have been launched into outer space? Or that Leonardo's Mona Lisa was, while posing, puffing on a cigar, which was part of the original painting? "Polite society in Florence was so enraged," author Philip Collins tells us, "that pressure was brought to bear.... Leonardo agreed to erase the cigar, but not the smile that resulted from it." This amusing picture book puts cigars at the center of works of art, historical events, and, well, just about everything--the further out, the better. A collection of well-known images doctored to give cigars their due, Cigar Bizarre is a cornucopia of visual puns for those who like their history revised and irreverent.

Duke Univ Pr (Trd); ISBN: 0822314010

Klein's survey of the history of cigarettes and their gestalt of ritual, seduction, contemplation, and danger is fruitful and often surprising. For Native Americans, tobacco was a minor divinity, and smoke a prayer. For writers and artists, smoking has often been part of the creative process. The sharing of cigarettes has long been a gesture of courtship and sensuality, an expression of rebelliousness and bravado, and a balm for the terrors and tragedy of war and other intolerable circumstances. As Klein discusses the representation of cigarettes in literature and film, he also tracks various attitudes toward smoking. He believes the current zealous condemnation goes far beyond matters of health and drifts into issues of personal freedom. But he never denies the fact that smoking cigarettes is bad for you. Of course they're hazardous, that's why they're sublime: they combine pleasure with an "intimation of mortality."

The American cigarette industry is again facing enormous pressure from various groups whose goal is a "smoke free" society. What differentiates this present wave from the previous two waves of regulation faced by the cigarette industry is the severity with which these measures are applied by the state and local government who are enacting anti-smoking laws and regulations and increased excise taxes. Cigarette taxes are a lucrative revenue for the states, which they must ultimately trade-off with their stated goals of deterring smoking. Frequently, in spite of the needs of public health, states find themselves competing with one another for these excise tax revenues and cigarette sales, making them the primary point of challenge for the cigarette industry.

For Your Own Good : The Anti-Smoking Crusade and the Tyranny of Public Health

Availability: Usually ships within 24 hours.
Hardcover - 368 pages (April 1998)
The Free Press; ISBN: 0684827360

In this controversial book, Jacob Sullum demolishes the leading claims of the antismoking movement; their assertions have been advanced, he says, because the movement's principals would like the government to take control of the tobacco industry. Have you heard that secondhand smoke is bad for you? "There is no evidence that casual exposure to secondhand smoke has any impact on your life expectancy," writes Sullum, a drug policy expert and senior editor at Reason magazine. The debate over smoking is really more about the nature of liberty--how should a society restrict the choices of its members?--than it is about public health. Ex-Surgeon General C. Everett Koop is certain not to like For Your Own Good, but Sullum makes a powerful and provocative case against America's public health crusaders.

As science and health writer for the New York Times, Hilts first broke the incredible story of intrigue behind the B & W papers, and he elaborates on that here. He begins this account in 1953, when the public first learned of a possible link between cancer and cigarettes. He shows how tobacco companies mislead the public, adulterate their product, target the young, and intimidate critics. The issue of smoking aside, Hilts' is a troubling look at the abuses of corporate power.
