BACK COVER #The need for intoxication is as old as humanity. We should therefore try to understand it, to prevent it getting out of control, and treat its victims humanely. The author points out the hypocritical ways in which we view illegal drugs. There are illuminating examples of how 'drug dependence' has been viewed at different times and in different societies. These give new insight into how much cultural aspects influence our view of drug abuse.
This is a throught-provoking inquiry into our preconceptions and attitudes towards this emotive subject.
