'Interesting, provocative and highly readable Bancroft provides a critical text that works as a useful antidote to the coverage of drugs in more cautious and conventional accounts.' - Nigel South, University of Essex
'Bancroft does an extraordinary job of reviewing the relevant literature and he makes excellent use of historical and cross-cultural examples in building a case for a contructionist understanding of drugs.' - Robert Heiner, Plymouth State University
