Addicts - Everything but Human Beings
Waldorf, Dan; Reinarman, Craig
Urban Life, 4, 1, 30-53, Apr 75
Popular theories of drug addiction are detailed and found wanting. Naturalistic studies of addicts in their own environments are reviewed in order to demonstrate that addicts do not fit these theories which are supposed to explain them. A plea is made to pay more attention to these ethnographic studies, if more effective and humane laws and social policies are to be implemented. (EH)
