What is known about the influence of ethnicity upon drug use? How can this knowledge be used to develop prevention programmes for multi-ethnic youth? Contributors to this invaluable book address these and other pressing questions. They consider specific problems and challenges confronting researchers involved in studying substance abuse in minority communities; explore explanations for racial and ethnic differences in drug use; and examine possible risk and protective factors which influence use. Current drug abuse prevention models in settings including schools, communities and homeless shelters are also presented.
