'One of my postgraduate students, who has substantial experience in addiction services, described this book as a ‘‘breath of fresh air.’’ She was right.
The book is written in a succinct and engaging style, providing a critical introduction to key themes, and should be read by interested individuals, including those employed in the media. It should be of interest to students of social and health sciences, including academics who need to update or incorporate drug issues into programme design and teaching.
The editors of this series suggest that drug use is a classic issue on which many pontiﬁcate, in the absence of knowledge and understanding. This book provides a contemporary and thought provoking solution to that problem. I recommend it.' Journal of Social Work
