about this item

Concepts of Addictive Substances and Behaviours across Time and Place presents fascinating new research in European addiction studies which examines the temporal and spatial variations of addiction behaviours in European societies. The work centres on the relationship between local and global trends in behaviours, and sets out a framework for understanding the roles played by different social actors.The expert team of authors have assembled findings from three main research areas: the regionally-bound language-use tied to addiction problems, localised concepts and ideas about addictive behaviour, and the relationship between global and regional trends in addictive behaviour. The work develops a framework for understanding the roles played by the various stakeholders in European societies when addressing and solving the problems associated with addiction, and the perception of addiction problems is discussed as part of an integrated system of knowledge-based governance.Concepts of Addictive Substances and Behaviours across Time and Place is based on research from ALICE RAP, a multidisciplinary European study of addictive substances and behaviours in contemporary society. This is an essential resource for public health professionals, stakeholders influencing policy for addictive substances and behaviours, students, and academics looking to better understand the historical and geographical variations of addictive behaviours across in Europe and the role of stakeholder involvement in the construction of addiction prevention policy.
