    schema:reviewBody ""A high proportion of crimes committed in Britain are drugs-related, with many offenders reporting drug use prior to the commission of their offence. However, the direct link between drug taking and crime is often less clear than is supposed if only because many of those offenders would have committed offences anyway, and these offences need to be separated from those that are directly caused by drugs. Attempts to address many of these and related issues have been bedevilled by misunderstanding and a lack of consensus on the nature of the relationship between drugs and crime." "This book is a major contribution to this debate, and provides an authoritative and much-needed overview of the range of issues associated with drugs-related crime." "This updated and expanded new edition builds upon the strengths of the first edition, extends its coverage to Scotland and Ireland, and includes a wholly new chapter on theoretical debates surrounding the drugs and crime issue."--Jacket." ;
