About this book

This 'landmark' text by one of the most respected researchers in drug use considers the issues surrounding the gendering of drug use, and within this looks critically at two approaches - the classical and postmodern. Ettorre examines the idea of a drug-using society and the implications this holds for social inequality and exclusion.
