From the Publisher:

Designed for students from diverse backgrounds, this highly accessible text provides students with a thorough background in the field of behavioral pharmacology and prepares them to analyze drug information from a variety of sources. Written in a clear and sensible manner, it not only describes the effects of drugs on behavior, but also the various ways that behavior principles facilitate an understanding of both the actions of drugs and the way people use them. Each chapter provides comparable information on many classes of both drugs of abuse and psychotherapeutic drugs, including their neurophysiological mechanism of action, their effects on behavior, and a discussion of the historical and social context in which the drug is used.
