The Handbook of Abusable Drugs is the definitive work in the area of abusable drugs. The first twenty-one chapters, arranged in logical sequence from the introduction to social pharmacology to simple definition of drug states, the book traces drug use through history and analyzes the contemporary drug scene. It includes a glossary of street and scientific terms, finger-tip drug charts, and over 3,600 selected references. The treatment and prevention sections for each prototype drug encompasses detailed clinical information. The book concludes with a provocative discussion of the prospects for drug abuse including diagnosis intervention and treatment. This is a monumental work with theoretical and practical significance.
