Couverture de l’ouvrage Addiction : From biology to policy, 2° ed. 2001
Drug addiction as a brain disease is this book's theme. Among the many volumes on drugs written for lay readers, it is unique in the breadth and depth of its coverage. In clear scientific terms-- with may striking examples from the author's experience as a scientist and clinician --it describes the nature of chemical addiction and addictive behavior, the seven families of addictive drugs, and the muddied effort to develop effective drug control policies and laws.
