Editorial Reviews


"In this four-volume set for professionals and lay readers, experts from around the world highlight the latest issues and research into addictions of all kinds. The set emphasizes multicultural and international issues in addiction, and covers common topics, such as alcohol abuse and cocaine addiction, as well as addiction to caffeine, pornography, and shopping, highlighting biological, psychological, social, spiritual, and public health perspectives. Volume I offers a sampling of the depth and breadth of addiction and addiction studies today and in the past."


SciTech Book News

"…a worthy addition to the literature, in part because it's not written by the usual suspects, and clinicians and scholars of various perspectives will undoubtedly find someone new among the diverse crew of authors."



Book Description

This four volume set offers a one-stop source for classic, new, and emerging research and insights regarding substance addictions and other behavioral addictions internationally.
