The command of the research literature is impressive and the wide range of contributors ensures that readers will be exposed to all aspects of the current questions concerning drug policy. From the wonderfully inclusive overview of Philip Heymann’s introduction to the highly detailed discussion of data by William Brownsberger on drug users and drug dealers, each of the contributions is high quality and addresses a cutting edge issue.—Mathea Falco, President, Drug Strategies

They write with clarity and candor. They reach conclusions. They make sense. What a refreshing experience!—Thomas C. Schelling, School of Public Affairs, University of Maryland
