Drugs, Society and Criminal Justice covers the social impact of drug abuse, through a criminal justice lens. It's a comprehensive, easy-to-read introduction to drug-taking behavior and its impact on the criminal justice system. Building on sociological theory, the authors explore the social problems associated with drug abuse, a range of drug-control policies and their enactment, and the complex relationship between drug-taking behavior and crime.
The 5th Edition has been extensively updated, with a brand-new Part 2 focused on criminal justice topics related to drug abuse and drug law. This edition also includes chapter-level reorganizations throughout the text and updated features prompting discussion, assignments and deeper comprehension.
