Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(1), 47–48. Reviews the book, Clinician's Guide to Cocaine Addiction: Theory, Research, and Treatment edited by Thomas R. Kosten and Herbert D. Kleber (1992). This book is well informed by the first-hand participation of the editors and chapter authors in the ground-breaking research on cocaine that has been centered at Yale. This immediate relationship with the research and resultant literature enriches the chapters with a sense of discovery and enthusiasm. Furthermore, the fact that these authors are colleagues and not just invited chapter authors is apparent throughout the book, particularly in the thoughtful interweaving of the disciplines within chapters. The Clinician's Guide achieves broad coverage of the science of cocaine. The editors take the reader on a well-planned and informative tour of cocaine research. The editors conclude with an extended series of chapters on treatment for cocaine abuse and dependence. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
