Drugs in society, drugs in our lives: Drugs and behavior today; Drug-taking behavior, the personal and social concerns; How drugs work in the body and on the mind - Legally restricted drugs in our society: Major stimulants, cocaine and amphetamines; Major narcotics, opium, morphine, and heroin; LSD and other hallucinogens; Marijuana; Anabolic steroids and drug abuse in sports - Legal. 4th ed. External-identifier.

This text examines the impact of drug-taking behavior on our society and our daily lives. The use and abuse of a wide range of licit and illicit drugs are discussed from historical, biological, psychological, and sociological perspectives.

With a strong emphasis on prevention and education and interesting pedagogical features, this book covers the effects of abuse from a biological, psychological, sociological, and health perspective. The book addresses drug-related topics in every aspect of life with information on inhalants, over-the-counter drugs, nicotine, caffeine, and more, providing students with the tools to make intelligent decisions and interpret the many ways in which drugs affect their world.

In today's world, drugs and their use present a social paradox, combining the potential for good and for bad. As a society and as individuals, we can be the beneficiaries of drugs or their victims. This perspective continues to be the message of Drugs, Behavior, and Modern Society, Fourth Edition. As has been the case since the first edition published in 1996, students will be introduced to the basic facts and the major issues concerning drug-taking behavior, in a straightforward, comprehensive, and “reader-friendly” manner. The text covers the range of chemical substances that affect our minds and our bodies and discusses the challenges these substances bring to our daily lives. Drugs, Behavior, and Modern Society, Fourth Edition has been designed to be the most comprehensive review of psychoactive drugs of any undergraduate college textbook on the market today. It is particularly notable for the attention given to two aspects of drug-taking behavior that have been underreported in other texts: steroid abuse and inhalant abuse. The text also highlights the impact of dietary supplements, whether herb-based or not, on the current drug scene; the impact of “club drugs” on contemporary drug-taking behavior; and the recent increase in the abuse of prescription analgesic (pain-relief) medications such as OxyContin. Anyone interested in how drugs affect our society.

I got this book for my undergrad degree. When I first started college, I purchased all my books which got very expensive. I then began renting my texts through the school and other websites. This semester I decided to check Amazon's rental program. I'm soooo glad I did because the prices can't be beat! The text came super fast, unlike the school bookstore which usually sells out of the rentals fairly quick and other sites who inform you the book is backordered after your class starts and after you were already expecting to receive the text, leaving you in a real bind. Amazon had the book to me in a matter of a few days and at a great price. I'm also enjoying the text itself. I find it to be very informative and easy to read. I often get bored with long readings in my classes but this text has really held my interest and I'm eager to move on to read the next chapter. I will definitely be renting all my texts from Amazon hereafter!

Good read for college.

I am extremely dissatisfied with this item, I opened the package today only to find the book in FOUR pieces . The binding is completely broken and I am afraid to even use it. For $140, I absolutely expected to be rented a book that was at least functional. VERY DISAPPOINTED.

I used this book in one of my college classes 6 years ago but I liked it really much so I bough it now.

Angana
Very thorough and explains well each topic.

Vivados
Excellent text.

This is a great text for beginning to learn about different substance uses. It gives good information and is up-to-date on information of new drugs in society. One area that it may lack is not enough information on treatment methods for substance abuse. More information on the type of treatments for substance abuse and addiction would compliment this book well!

I actually needed the 7th Edition for my class but I got the 6th Edition and found it to be exactly like the 7th edition only cheaper. I would totally recommend this book, goes into enough detail about different drugs and everything else that you learn without feeling overwhelmed like you would by reading a normal textbook.
