Professor Donald MacKenzie: Material Markets :  How Economic Agents are Constructed (Oxford University Press, 2009)

Dr Angus Bancroft: Drugs, Intoxication and Society, published by Polity Press.

'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
