Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"David Forbes has given us a book on drugs for the post-Reagan era. Even now there are few treatments of this subject from the point of view of its victims, the addicts. This book is an invaluable source for new social policy and widespread debate in the social sciences." -- Stanley Aronowitz, Graduate Center, City University of New York

This book examines recent efforts to rid society of addictions and finds them wanting. The author examines everyday addictive patterns within modernist and postmodernist cultures and provides practical suggestions in the areas of substance abuse prevention and the addiction recovery movement.

"This is an exciting, innovative, and far-reaching work, not only revealing the shortsightedness of modernist approaches to addiction, but inviting radical departures resonant with the technological era of postmodernism. Most importantly, David Forbes demonstrates the importance of meaning and relatedness in the addiction process." -- Kenneth J. Gergen, Swarthmore College

David Forbes teaches Human Services at the Borough of Manhattan Community College, City University of New York and worked in a school-based drug and alcohol abuse prevention program for nine years.
