Examining the interdependent nature of substance, space, and subjectivity, this book constitutes an interdisciplinary analysis of the intoxication indigenous to what has been termed "our narcotic modernity." The first section -Drug/Culture - demonstrates how the body of the addict and the social body of the city are both inscribed by "controlled" substance. Positing addiction as a "pathology (out) of place" that is specific to the (late-)capitalist urban landscape, the second section - Dope/Sick - conducts a critique of the prevailing pathology paradigm of addiction, proposing in its place a theoretical reconceptualization of drug dependence in the terms of "p/re/in-scription." Remapping the successive stages or phases of our narcotic modernity, the third section - Narco/State - delineates three primary eras of narcotic modernity, including the contemporary city of "safe"/"supervised" consumption. Employing an experimental, "intra-textual" format, the fourth section - Brain/Disease - mimics the sense, state or scape of intoxication accompanying each permutation of narcotic modernity in the interchangeable terms of drug, dream and/or disease. Tracing the parallel evolution of "addiction," the (late-)capitalist cityscape, and the pathological project of modernity, the four parts of this book thus together constitute ausers' guide to urban space.
As a psychologist, and after years of study, I wanted to create books from the material I have gathered over the years to make available to the public. My books, beginning with my first book - STRESS, We Can Master It- are laid out in a way that everyone can understand. Psychological theories, definitions, analysis can be rather daunting for those who are not involved in this particular field. Knowing this, I tried to simplify, to a point, as best I could this material to make it readable and comprehensible to the everyday person. I am sure whoever would read this book will gain a little something that can help them in some way. You will read in this third book in my series: What are Drugs and what is Addiction? Why People use Drugs Marijuana: The Myth and the Reality. Opiates (Heroin). Amphetamines/ Methamphetamines (Speed) Cocaine Hallucinogens (Ecstasy, LSD). An in Depth Analysis of Addiction Drugs and Personality Disorders I Drugs and Personality Disorders II Withdrawal- An Addict's Worst Nightmare Reading the book you will likely obtain a helpful insight in to drugs and addictions and discover things you did not know which could either help you or someone you know.

<b>Discover how biomarkers can boost the success rate of drug development efforts</b> <p> As pharmaceutical companies struggle to improve the success rate and cost-effectiveness of the drug development process, biomarkers have emerged as a valuable tool. This book synthesizes and reviews the latest efforts to identify, develop, and integrate biomarkers as a key strategy in translational medicine and the drug development process. Filled with case studies, the book demonstrates how biomarkers can improve drug development timelines, lower costs, facilitate better compound selection, reduce late-stage attrition, and open the door to personalized medicine. <p> <i>Biomarkers in Drug Development</i> is divided into eight parts: <ul> <li> <p> Part One offers an overview of biomarkers and their role in drug development. <li> <p> Part Two highlights important technologies to help researchers identify new biomarkers. <li> <p> Part Three examines the characterization and validation process for both drugs and diagnostics, and provides practical advice on appropriate statistical methods to ensure that biomarkers fulfill their intended purpose. <li> <p> Parts Four through Six examine the application of biomarkers in discovery, preclinical safety assessment, clinical trials, and translational medicine. <li> <p> Part Seven focuses on lessons learned and the practical aspects of implementing biomarkers in drug development programs. <li> <p> Part Eight explores future trends and issues, including data integration, personalized medicine, and ethical concerns. </ul> <p> Each of the thirty-eight chapters was contributed by one or more leading experts, including scientists from biotechnology and pharmaceutical firms, academia, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Their contributions offer pharmaceutical and clinical researchers the most up-to-date understanding of the strategies used for and applications of biomarkers in drug development.
The production of this book represents a culmination for me of some 25 years of interest in the field of personality and substance use and abuse. In choosing the field of substanceuse and abuse for the focus of our research, all of the investi- tors collaborating in this research have been sustained by the awareness that the work we are doing has an important purpose. Substance abuse continues to have enormous impacts on individuals and families,and prevention and treatment - proaches developed to date have not always been as successful as we would hope to see. New advances in our fundamental understanding of the causal mec- nisms involved in the development ofaddiction may be necessary to advance our success in developing new forms of prevention and treatment for alcohol and drug abuse. The work in this book builds on the work of numerous previous investi- tors who have been drawn to investigate this topic. As you will notice in the extensive reference list, there have been hundreds of articles published on this topic. Although each of these references has added a small piece to our und- standing of the relationship between personality and alcohol abuse, the majority of these studies have been done on clinical samples and often involved no control groups or poorly matched control groups. Several important previous longitu- nal investigations have been conducted,but these investigations have usually not included general population samples or comprehensivepersonality test batteries.
