For undergraduate courses in Chemistry, Biology, Sociology, Criminal Justice and Health and Drug Education.
In this reliable reference, Liska addresses the effects of high-use, high-abuse drugs in America in a timely and straightforward fashion. Up-to-date research is reflected throughout, including coverage of street, over-the-counter, and prescriptive drugs. The Eighth Edition explores changing trends in personalized drug therapy and highlights the World Wide Web as a primary source of drug information. The presentation is accessible to the non-science major, yet comprehensive enough for the practicing professional.
