Trevor Noah kam 1984 im Township Soweto als Sohn einer Xhosa und eines Schweizers zur Welt. Zu einer Zeit, da das südafrikanische Apartheidsregime „gemischtrassige“ Beziehungen weiterhin unter Strafe stellte. Als Kind, das es nicht geben durfte, erlebte er Armut und systematischen Rassismus, aber auch die mutige Auflehnung seiner "farbenblinden" Eltern, die einfallsreich versuchten, Trennungen zwischen Ethnien und Geschlechtern zu überwinden. Heute ist er ein international gefeierter Comedian, der die legendäre "The Daily Show" in den USA leitet und weltweit – ob Sydney, Dubai, Toronto, San Francisco oder Berlin – in ausverkauften Sälen auftritt. In "Farbenblind" erzählt Trevor Noah ebenso feinsinnig wie komisch in achtzehn Geschichten von seinem Aufwachsen in Südafrika, das den ganzen Aberwitz der Apartheid bündelt: warum ihn seine Mutter aus einem fahrenden Minibus warf, um Gottes Willen zu erfüllen, welche Musik er für einen tanzenden Hitler aufzulegen pflegte, um sein erstes Geld zu verdienen, und wie ihn eine Überwachungskamera, die nicht einmal zwischen Schwarz und Weiß unterscheiden konnte, vor dem Gefängnis bewahrte.

This book is intended for the drug course taught out of sociology and/or criminology/criminal justice departments. The course can be quite large and taught at the sophomore or junior level. The book may also be deemed appropriate in lower division courses, or for a lower-division graduate course, depending on the institution in which it is used. Most texts that are written in the area of drug use are written either from a counseling/psychology perspective or from a physiology/pharmacologypoint of view, and do not attempt to deal extensively with the social context of drug use in American society. This text provides a broader sociological perspective on drug use than any other text currently on the market, and has an extensive section on methods and statistics for measuring drug use (important in particular for sociology students). The authors also comprehensively address the critical substantive and policy issues in the field.
