Drugs & Behavior

January 2017 | 1 320 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

The use of substances across the world has been increasing in the last 25 years, coupled with a rising political focus on both illegal and legal drug use.  Split into two volumes to give a complete overview, this landmark publication maps out the debate on drugs and alcohol.  Volume one investigates social science theory on the subject and volume two addresses biological approaches. Topics covered range from anthropology and neo-colonialism to toxicology and screening.

The chapters are interdisciplinary in scope, and draw on perspectives including from sociology, criminology, healthcare, social care, neurology, psychology, pharmacology and economics.

It is valuable reading for students, researchers, academics and professionals working in this area.
