About this item

The Handbook of Drugs and Society provides a comprehensive examination of the past and present roles of drugs in society with a focus on theory, research, policy, and practice. Edited by a noted scholar in the field and written by top social and behavioral scientists, it includes 27 original chapters with multidisciplinary and international perspectives. Each chapter reviews current knowledge in the field, including key research findings, theoretical developments, and methodological debates, and identifies ongoing controversies in the field, emergent topics, and areas in need of further inquiry. The coverage is broad and complete with discussion of individual drugs, as well as topics like physiological theories of drug use and abuse, public health implications of drugs, patterns of drugs and crime, international drug trade and trafficking, prevention of drug use and treatment of drug abuse, and designer drugs. Filled with up-to-date and engaging material, this collection provides important insights for scholars and practitioners in a field of high stakes and consequences for individuals and societies around the globe.
