Drugs In American Society
By Goode, Erich
The new edition of this well-respected brief text probes the drug phenomenon in all its social, cultural and legal complexity. It covers the full range of psychoactive drug use, from legal medical and prescription use to criminal, recreational use, from casual use to addiction. As in previous editions, Goode remains unique in his emphasis on the sociological perspective, explaining the drug phenomenon using sociological concepts supported by recent data from a wide range of sources. Drugs in American Society, 5/e provides the most balanced and up-to-date investigation of drug use available.
