MEDIA REVIEWS
"This intelligently written, accesible volume focuses on addiction and its history." - School Library Journal
"Appropriate for libraries where addictions are studied and where there is an emphasis on the use of primary sources." - Booklist
"Aimed at a general audience, this handy yet comprehensive reference by Padwa (independent scholar) and Cunningham (history, Hebrew Union College) is divided into three major sections....In this new work the lucid language makes even legal entries easy to comprehend, thereby assisting those addicts who are looking to help themselves as well as those supporters helping friends or relatives overcome their addiction problems. Overall, this book achieves what it sets out to, serving as a handy, go-to reference work. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." - Choice
"... recommended for purchase by public and academic libraries." - Catholic Library World
