From the Back Cover:

Cocktails & Dreams: Perspectives on Drug and Alcohol Use offers students a collection of twenty-two qualitative research articles which dismantle many of the stereotypes associated with the consumption of legal and illegal drugs. By featuring articles from national and international scholars, students are able to make appreciable comparisons across different cultural and societal groups. Students will find many of the narratives contained in these assembled articles to be provocative, engaging, and, to some extent, controversial—an easy catalyst for professors wishing to truly reach their students.
