Everything you ever wanted to know about cocaine is contained in this comprehensive, highly readable book. It should be of benefit to scholars and researchers, as well as practicing clinicians.' --Charles R. Schuster, Ph.D., National Institute on Drug Abuse
This is a very good book. It makes a real contribution to the practical literature on cocaine. I found it highly informative...it is written at a level that nonspecialists in the area will also find both entertaining and useful.'
--Charles P. O'Brien, Ph.D., Addiction Treatment Research Center, University of Pennsylvania
"I had forgotten how many outstanding researchers in cocaine either are presently or were recently at the Yale Substance Abuse Center...In addition, I had forgotten the breadth of research on cocaine at Yale; from neurochemistry to history to epidemiology to medication development to psychotherapy to genetics to comorbidity. Finally, I had forgotten how many important findings were first described at Yale...Given this wealth of talent, this edited text is much better than other single-university texts...Most chapters provide a well-referenced and fair summary of prior work, plus a presentation of clinical examples and existing programs at Yale...Offers a good description of the more important areas in cocaine research." --John R. Hughes, M.D., The American Journal on Addictions
