Drug use by adolescents is usually viewed as the result of personal vulnerability to peer pressures or drug pushers. This book provides a new perspective which is sociological rather than epidemiological, understanding patterns of drug-taking in the context of ordinary social interaction. In this social worlds analysis, adolescents' own concerns with boredom, depression, social identity, friendship, access to drugs, self-control and folk pharmacology replace the professionals' focus on deviant behaviour. Both drug-taking and drug-abstaining are analysed as decisions made within social worlds made up of peers and family.

About the Author:

Barry Glassner is the author of the national bestseller "The Culture of Fear". He is a professor of sociology at USC, and he lives in Los Angeles.

From Library Journal:

The first chapter compares epidemiological, political, and social explanations of adolescent drug use. The remainder of the book relies on participant-observation and in-depth interviewing to decribe the "social worlds" of adolescent users and nonusers. The intent is to understand drug use not as deviance but as an aspect of social interaction. There is very heavy reliance upon excerpts from interviews with 100 teenagers. Fewer excerpts and one more good chapter of theoretical explanation would be helpful, but as it stands the book provides an interesting descripton of drug use from the points of view of young users and non-uers. For serious students of adolescent drug use. John Broderick, Sociology Dept., Stonehill Coll., North Easton, Mass.
