Prohibitions and Psychoactive Substances in History, Culture and Theory : Prohibitions and Psychoactive Substances, Paperback / softback Book

Prohibitions and Psychoactive Substances in History, Culture and Theory : Prohibitions and Psychoactive Substances Paperback / softback

Edited by Susannah Wilson

Paperback / softback

Description

This volume is a new contribution to the dynamic scholarly discussion of the control and regulation of psychoactive substances in culture and society.

Offering new critical reflections on the reasons prohibitions have historically arisen, the book analyses "prohibitions" as ambivalent and tenuous interactions between the users of psychoactive substances and regulators of their use.

This original collection of essays engages with contemporary debates concerning addiction, intoxication and drug regulation, and will be of interest to scholars in the arts, humanities and social sciences interested in narratives of prohibition and their social and cultural meanings.
