Smoke 'em if ya got 'em? Not anymore!

Attitudes towards smoking have certainly changed. As recently as the 1990's you could smoke in the library, and back in the '50s cigarette company reps would cruise the student union, passing out free packs of their brands to get new customers! Now smoking is not allowed on campus, and today's Daily Eagle has a piece on quitting smoking.

We have some great books on smoking and tobacco use, e.g. Smoke: a global history of smoking. Article databases like Academic Search, America: History & Life, Education Research and Medline would be excellent for general articles on smoking, the history of tobacco, smoking and education, and the health effects of smoking respectively.
