Drugs for anxiety are a billion-dollar business in the United States. Yet in 1955, when the prescription tranquilizer Miltown became available, pharmaceutical executives worried that there was no market. In The Age of Anxiety , historian Andrea Tone provides a comprehensive account of the rise of America's prescription drug culture through the lens of our complicated relationship with tranquilizers.
