Description

"Addiction" is the first book in a new book series from Addiction Press. Addiction Press was set up with the express purpose of communicating current ideas and evidence in this expanding field, not only to researchers and practising health professionals, but also to policy makers, students and interested non-specialists. These publications are designed to address the significant challenges that addiction presents to modern society.


The study of addiction has moved from being a fragmented and under-developed area of science to become a frontier subject with its own identity. This book describes that fascinating process of evolution through a series of face-to-face interviews with the international scientists and other protagonists in the field who helped make the process happen. For instance, Sir Richard Doll, whose pioneering work helped establish the relationship between cigarette smoking and cancer of the lung, and Dr Jerome Jaffe, America's first "Drugs Czar," who describes how Richard Nixon came to see the national importance of the research base for a more effective response to America's devastating heroin problem among GIs during the Vietnam War.
