Unlike most texts about drug use, which are written either from a counseling/psychology or physiology/pharmacology point of view, "The Sociology of American Drug Use" mainstreams the coverage for sociology and criminology programs, and at the same time provides a broader sociological perspective on drug use. Much of this material comes from Charles Faupel's own research experience among street heroin addicts on the East coast; several chapters offer an ethnographer's perspective on the specific issues addressed, while at the same time maintaining a focus on the basics of this substantive field.

Leslie Alan Horvitz (New York, NY) is the author of several books, including Frontiers of Science. He is a frequent contributor to the Washington Times, and Science Times.Review:
"I believe this to be the most comprehensive, sensible, and thorough treatment of the sociology of drugs in America. Compared to its major competitors, this book is far more sociological, much better at keeping up with current trends, and addresses what I feel are the most important topics in the field. I am a fan of this book and most certainly will be one of the first adopters of the second edition."--Peter Adler, University of Denver
