This 'landmark' text by one of the most respected researchers in drug use considers the issues surrounding the gendering of drug use, and within this looks critically at two approaches - the classical and postmodern. Ettorre has previously argued for the need for a gender-sensitive approach to the drugs field and here she contends that this approach is still lacking. This book draws together theoretical and empirical studies on drug use, provides a comprehensive analysis of gendered bodiesand drug use and examines the idea of a drug-using society and the implications this holds for social inequality and exclusion.

Elizabeth Ettorre is Professor of Sociology at Liverpool University, UK.She has taught and researched in the USA, Finland and the UK and holds honorary appointments at the universities of Exeter, Helsinki, Abo Academy University and the Institute of Scientific Analysis. Her research interests include women’s studies, substance use, health and illness, and ethics.
