Reviews

"The text under review is a product of the recent progress made in the field of substance abuse prevention toward establishing a practical foundation supported by research and science.  It represents a concerted effort to summarize the latest information in the field of substance abuse prevention." (Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare, 31:2)

"The 692 page tome is comprehensive in scope, with chapters ranging from community mobilization and mass media strategies to school-based, family-based, and peer group-based intervention programs, as well as prevention in the workplace and for special populations such as females, Latinos, African Americans, American Indians, and Asians and Pacific Islanders. These excellent essays, written by authors with considerable expertise in their respective specialties are highly recommended, not only for those interested in prevention issues, but for all persons concerned with the issues of drugs in modern society." (James F. Rooney; Health, Illness, and Medicine, 33:2)
