From the reviews:
"This book grew out of a symposium entitled `Frontiers in Science: Drug Addiction-From Basic Research to Therapies' held at the end of 2004. ... The book is composed of 44 chapters, all concerned with basic science research relevant to drug dependence. ... even for basic scientists this book is best approached as one where at most a few chapters may be of interest to any researcher ... in drug addiction." (Jason White, Drug And Alcohol Review, Vol. 28, July, 2009)
