". . . recommended for libraries that need an extensive up-to-date overview of the important, cross-disciplinary field of substance abuse. Physicians, pharmacists, nurses, social workers, those involved in drug abuse treatment, as well as general readers would all find the work helpful. Those libraries with adequate budgets should invest in the Jaffe set." -- Medical Reference Services Quarterly
"..this encyclopedia is an outstanding reference. As the addition of 'Addictive Behavior' in the title indicates, the editors have broadened the scope (1st ed., Encyclopedia of Drugs and Alcohol, ed. by Jerome H. Jaffe, CH, Dec '95) to include addictions (e.g., pathological gambling) that are not substance based. The authors have updated and added articles that report expanding research in areas such as brain imaging, human genome research, and epidemiology. Social, legal, and historical aspects of substance abuse are well covered...A recent, less expensive alternative, The Encyclopedia of Understanding Alcohol and Other Drugs,..is broader in scope but less scholarly. General and undergraduate readers."-- CHOICE (September 2001)
"This new edition retains the same organizational format as the 1995 Encyclopedia of Drugs and Alcohol. The first three volumes are arranged alphabetically by subject, ranging from "Abstinence" to "Zero Tolerance." Although the number of topics is approximately the same as in the 1st edition, there are substantial changes. Several topics, such as the "Haight-Ashbury Free Clinic," the "Phoenix House," and "recidivism," have been dropped. New topics, such as "racial profiling," "gambling," and the "genome project," have been added. Other topics have been expanded and revised. As in the 1st edition, the articles are written by experts at a level understandable to high school students and the general public. ... This reference book is comprehensive and current. It is recommended for public and academic libraries." -- ARBA (2002)
