Here's what Woody Harrelson has to say about it - "Hemp for Victory is perhaps the most comprehensive history and collection of information about hemp to date...this book is a must read."
The title of the book is taken from a 1942 film made by the US government which was used to encourage Hemp farming in WWII. The irony of their promotion of Hemp sets an interesting tone throughout the book, which, in four parts - World Wide History, Uses and Applications, Methods, and The Many Fields of Hemp, covers the subject more completely than any work to date. Its pages are generously graced with 160 images (including fold out illustrations), some very rare, gleaned from older books on Hemp that are virtually unknown, some current photos, and a good amount of original artwork as well, making this book a pleasant read. There is a resource guide, a bibliography and an index, and, hundreds of source notes making this an authorative work on a complex subject. The first section of the book is even printed on Treefree Hemp paper.
