Illicit drugs and their use are a dominant concern of politicians, policy makers and the general public. As such, this second edition of the popular Illicit Drugs: Use and Control provides a timely, up-to-date discussion of the key issues raised in the first edition, whilst also providing new chapters which address:

  • Class, gender and race
  • The geo-politics of illicit drug production and distribution
  • Britain’s drug use within a global context

Drawing information from wide-ranging sources, Adrian Barton illuminates the complex nature and broad impact illicit drug use carries in its wake and provides an overview of the contemporary state of the drug 'scene'.

This accessible book, with its inclusion of new pedagogical features, will be essential reading for students and researchers working in the area of drugs and society.
