The second edition of Illicit Drugs: Use and Control provides a completely up-dated and re-written volume that includes three new chapters which look at illicit drug use: class, gender and race; the geo-politics of illicit drug production and distribution and; Britain in a global context. These have been included to alert the reader to the increasingly global nature of the drug trade and the uneven manner in which drug use takes place and is portrayed by the media. The format and layout of the book has changed and it is now more 'user-friendly' seeing the inclusion of text boxes, questions for reflection and suggested further reading lists at the end of each chapter. The new edition still offers the same broad-brush approach and is written in the same accessible style but endeavours to bring to the reader the latest developments in the use and control of illicit drugs.
