Book DescriptionThis book reviews existing explanations of the links between drugs and crime, and assesses the practical approaches currently being taken to tackle the problems involved.
Editorial Review"Written in a clear and accessible style, the book challenges many of the 'cliches, misrepresentations and stereotypes' in our everyday thinking about the drugs problem ... this text is a useful and valuable resource for students interested in social policy, criminal justice, health and addiction studies." Times Higher Education "This book is refreshing in its transparency ... it is a superb book and will no doubt be of use to students and academics in this field, as well as to those who want to pick up a single text to obtain an overarching view of the subject." Drugs and Alcohol Today "One of the first academic texts to provide a realistic and discursive analysis of the drugs/crime debate ... essential reading for academics, practitionersand policy-makers who have an interest in or who work within the area." Health and Social Care in the Community "With an innovative combination of scientific and phenomenological approaches this text is a breath of fresh air for students and academics alike, providing a neutral basis from which to develop thinking and research within this highly influential area of study." The Psychologist "This excellent book questions a lot of what we believe we 'know' about drugs and crime. Hammersley subjects the basic concepts of the field to serious and penetrating analysis, managing to present complex ideas and arguments in a concise and extremely clear way. It is superbly written, insightful, wide-ranging and intellectually stimulating." Toby Seddon, University of Manchester "In this book, Hammersley brings together scientific, philosophical and phenomenological perspectives in a way that has never been done before. The result is a compelling text that will give pause for thought to anyone who felt that the epistemology of the words 'drugs' and 'crime' was clear enough, and that the relationship between the two transparently obvious." John B. Davies, University of Strathclyde
