Summary
"The authors conclude that future government drugs policy should pay particular attention to the lessons learned from research on the connection between drug and alcohol use and crime. This book is ideal for criminology, criminal justice, social policy and social work students, and is also a useful source for policy makers, the police, probation workers, social workers, drugs and alcohol counsellors, treatment agencies, sentencers, voluntary agencies, Drug Action Teams, and others with an interest in research on drugs and crime."--BOOK JACKET
