Great Book for Undergraduate Courses
on June 13, 2011
I used a preview version of this book for a class on illegal drug markets. In the past, I used academic articles by these same authors for issues like supply side drug enforcement efforts,and legalization. This book has the same authority and non-dogmatic presentation as those articles, but is more accessible. As a result of the introductory information, my students seemed to be better prepared to debate complex topics like legalization intelligently. I found the comparisons with alcohol and tobacco to be very helpful for my students, who for some reasons tend to see illegal drugs as very different substances.
