This authoritative overview of drugs and society today examines: whether a process of `normalization' of drugs and drug use is under way; the debate over prohibition versus legislation; `drugs' and `users' as `other' or `dangerous'; drugs and dance cultures; drug use among young women; images of `race' and drugs; medical responses to drugs; policing strategies and controlling drug users; drug control and sport; and the question of prohibition versus liberalization.

Pressestimmen

`This book contributes with authority to current debates on drug issues. It gives an overview of how we got here with insights to a future where positions may be less polarised.... Its interdisciplinary approach and cogent discussion make it useful for those wanting either an introductory text or new perspectives....This light paperback is packed with invaluable reading and references. It will resonate with anyone with an interest in drug use and Britain today' - Drug Link
`This a timely and cogently argued set of essays' The British Journal of Sociology
`Overall this is a timely and much needed volume with many of the contributions seemingly worthy in their own right. It provides an excellent overview of some of the most important and pressing issues in this area. Whilst the issue of drugs and drug consumption may be an expanding area of research, good literature in this area is surprisingly hard to come by. This book will provide an excellent resource for both lectures and students who are interested in these issues' - Sociology
