Matters of substance drugs--and why everyone's a user by Griffith Edwards( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Matters of Substance presents a radical and lucid approach to the much-debated question of drug control. Arguing for a consideration of all drugs - from valium to crack cocaine - as more than the sum of their chemical structure, Griffith Edwards expands the idea that the effect of a drug is just as dependent on the social setting, historical legacy and psychology of the individual as it is on any inherent quality of the drug." "Exploring attitudes and control of drugs across the world - from the social use of khat in the Yemen to curbs on smoking in the bars of New York - Matters of Substance places our various uses and abuses of drugs in the web of ideas we hold about personal freedom, the right to pleasure, the responsibilities of government and the impact of globalization. This book will inform and enlighten all future debates on drugs in society."--BOOK JACKET

Physician to the fleet : the life and times of Thomas Trotter, 1760-1832 by Brian Vale( Book )

7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas Trotter, after studying medicine at Edinburgh, began his naval career as a surgeon's mate in 1779 and saw continuous service up to the peace of 1802, rising as a result of great abilities and the right patronage to become Physician to the Channel Fleet, and being present at the great battles of Dogger Bank in 1781 and the Glorious First of June in 1794. As Physician to the Channel Fleet, he was a major player in the conquest of scurvy and the control of typhus and smallpox in the navy. After the peace he settled in Newcastle where he produced pioneering work on alcoholism and neurosis, as a result of which he is regarded as one of the founders of the field of addiction studies. This book provides an intimate account of naval life in the great age of sail from the perspective of a surgeon, describing the impact of Enlightenment ideas and new medical techniques, and showing how improved health was a crucial factor in making possible the British fleet's great victories in this period. BRIAN VALE is a maritime historian, whose books include 'Independence or Death: British sailors and Brazilian Independence' (Tauris 1996), 'A Frigate of King George, Life and Duty on a British Man-of-War' (Tauris 2001) and 'The Audacious Admiral Cochrane' (Conway 2004). GRIFFITH EDWARDS, Emeritus Professor at King's College, London, is one of the country's leading experts on addiction. His publications include 'Alchohol: the Ambiguous Molecule' (Penguin 2000) and 'Matters of Substance' (Penguin 2005)
