San Francisco: The Central City Target Area Action Board of Directors, 1967. Saddle-stapled in photo-illustrated wraps with text printed blue, 10 x 8 in. pp. , 44, ; illus. Soft crease to top leading corner. Mild edge wear. Complete but with four leaves bound upside down (and thus out of order). Very good or better.
A report on youth drug abuse in the Tenderloin and Central City areas of San Francisco, as prepared by the staff of Central City Target Area, a progressive anti-poverty program established in 1966 with federal money from Lyndon Johnson's Office of Economic Opportunity. Contents consist of statistics, quotations, and profiles drawn from a series of questionnaires, as evaluated (apparently for veracity_ by a "panel of 3 addicts." Foreword also states: "[The report's] authenticity is not based on the professional standing of the authors. Its value lies in the fact that it is a statement from "inside-out" rather than "outside-in"." Uncommon.
