About the Book
This 3-volume set is written for readers at grade 7 and higher and covers addictions, causes, and treatments of particular importance to adolescents. Articles on the nature of addiction and its roots include advertising, genetics, families, and personal problems. "Drugs, Alcohol & Tobacco" also addresses the prevention and nature of destructive substances and behaviors, such as cutting, binge drinking, Internet addiction, tobacco, ecstasy, eating disorders, and marijuana. The set uses the authoritative information from the 2nd edition of the "Encyclopedia of Drugs, Alcohol, and Addictive Behavior," but completely updates the information, thoroughly revises the language, and commissions original articles on topics such as media representations, drug use in schools, herbal supplements, and more. "Drugs, Alcohol & Tobacco" includes more than 200 articles on everything from binge drinking to the role of genetics in addictive behaviors, more than 50 graphs and charts and 275 full-color illustrations. Also included are four appendices: A comprehensive list of organizations and websites An annotated bibliography Glossary of terms Call-out definitions in margins Sidebars spotlighting topics of noteworthiness Cumulative index in volume 4
