Review:

Featured as a Times Higher Education book of the week.

'An excellent overview of a complex issue that should be a useful source for anyone interested in the origins, current status and possible future directions of drug and alcohol policies, particularly in relation to prohibition, and the author should be congratulated on this major achievement.' Professor David Nutt, Times Higher Education

'In this book, Sue Pryce attempts to unravel the Gordian Knot of drug policy and concludes there is no solution to the drug problem- 'it is unsolvable'. What might appear at first as a counsel of despair is in fact an insightful perspective. It enables the reader to move beyond the traditional polarised debates and the all embracing solutions which both sides promote to mirror and reinforce their supporters' ethics and values. Whatever view one holds, this book explores the pros and cons of different policies. At the end of the day, policymakers have to ameliorate the harms that both drugs and drug policy can create. They should read this to help them think about which course to steer.'

- Roger Howard, Chief Executive, UKDPC (UK Drug Policy Commission)
