To the Editor.—Several weeks ago, my abiding interest in our national drug policy was further piqued by a book review in JAMA,1 so I ordered The Selfish Brain, by Robert L. DuPont, MD. When it arrived, I was astounded to find that, although dealing assertively with all aspects of drug addiction from history through modern clinical concepts, the book contains no bibliography.
