Why Ritalin Rules.
Eberstadt, Mary
Policy Review, n94 p24-44 Apr-May 1999
Reviews the increased use of Ritalin in the United States and offers some reasons for its growing use. These include public misconceptions about the benign nature of the drug, the political and medical clout of organizations promoting its use, unclear concepts of attention-deficit disorder, and a desire to have children behave compliantly in class.
