This book contains a series of communications and discussions from a symposium on drug dependence held in London in 1968. It covers a broad range of topics dealing with the pharmacological, sociological, and psychological aspects of a variety of drugs, including the opiates, barbiturates, alcohol, and others. The presentations by recognized authorities in the field, mainly from Great Britain and this country, are informative and factual. For those interested in the problems of addiction this attractive book will add to their knowledge in this important and often neglected field.
