The Social Construction of the Minority Drug Problem.
Covington, Jeanette
Social Justice, v24 n4 p117-47 1997
Examines how the minority drug problem is framed in terms of anomie and underclass models suggesting that drug subcultures in urban black areas are formed as an adaptation to aggregate community conditions. The article considers how researchers use ecological and ethnographic data to back up claims that drug subcultures are a response to inner city conditions. (SLD)
