Condition: Very Good Condition

Longman Cheshire, Melbourne, 1991. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good Condition. Illustrator: Graphs & tables. I have made a small abrasion to the inside of the front cover when I removed a piece of sticky tape, and there is a small moisture market at the top left of the front cover which extends to about page 12 affecting the top edge left-hand side of the pages. Otherwise, clean without annotation and without underlining. This book presents the most comprehensive study of drugs in Australia publish to that date. The 1st chapter examines theoretical perspectives that attempt to explain drug use. It charts the historical trends in drug use theory since the 18th century, and identifies 3 main groups of theories: psychological, biomedical and socio-psychological, with chapter 2 narrowing the focus to concentrate on empirical studies of drug use. – Rear panel blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
