Review

"Congratulations to Martin H. Levinson, Ph.D., who has devoted his career to drug education and prevention, for forthrightly using general semantics in discussing "The Drug Problem" in an unusual and unusually enlightening way...Dr. Levinson's purpose is to educate people about the various asects of drug-related issues and to help in the construction of such methods and alternatives. In this, he has suceeded brilliantly...My main reaction is admiration for the work under review and Dr. Levinson for producing it. He clearly presents a unique, comprehensive, multifaceted approach to a well-described, multi-faceted set of problems. Now, bring on the readers- policy-makers, educators, and others concerned with learning enough to be able to support adequate policies."-ETC

Format: Hardcover
This book provides a fascinating and comprehensive analysis of the drug problem. It has chapters on American drug history, policy, the legalization issue, drugs and creativity, treatment, and prevention. There are also appendixes containing a time line of significant events over 10,000 years of human drug taking and a resource and referral guide.
The book is particularly valuable because, unlike other books that are highly polemical, the author presents all sides of an issue before making recommendations. This allows the reader more information from which to base his or her opinion on a specific topic. The author also brings the insights of general semantics, a scientific problem-solving approach, to flesh out the intricacies of this highly complex social predicament.
All in all this book offers an immensely readable and unique look at an important problem in American society. Highly recommended.
