Drugs, Society, and Criminal Justice, 2/e

By: Charles F. Levinthal, HofstraUniversity

 

 

An adaptation of Levinthal’s Drugs, Behavior, and Modern Society 5e, the second edition of this successful, widely-regarded, highly readable and pedagogy-oriented textbook on drug use and abuse approaches the topic from a sociological/psychological perspective, with particular attention given to issues related to drug-related crime and the criminal justice system.

  • The only general textbook on drug use and abuse with a specific orientation toward crime and criminal justice concerns.
  • The most up-to-date material of any drugs and alcohol textbook.
  • Oriented to the psychological and sociological aspects of drug-taking behavior in contemporary life.
  • “Portrait” features shine the spotlight on a contemporary or historical figure who has had an impact on issues of drug abuse and the criminal justice system related to illicit drugs.  
  • “Drugs in Focus” features provide historical, contemporary, and future-oriented "side-bar" discussion-provoking topics. 

 

What the reviewers are saying…

 

“I found the text to be engrossing and packed with information presented in a factual, and balanced view.  The author, Dr. Levinthal, has the ability to present complex material in an easy to read style that makes it quite digestible and understandable to the reader.”  Frank E. Norton, Bowie State University
