Expanding Addiction: Critical Essays, Paperback / softback Book


The study of addiction is dominated by a narrow disease ideology that leads to biological reductionism.

In this short volume, editors Granfield and Reinarman make clear the importance of a more balanced contextual approach to addiction by bringing to light critical perspectives that expose the historical and cultural interstices in which the disease concept of addiction is constructed and deployed.

The readings selected for this anthology include both classic foundational pieces and cutting-edge contemporary works that constitute critical addiction studies.

This book is a welcome addition to drugs or addiction courses in sociology, criminal justice, mental health, clinical psychology, social work, and counseling.
