Eugene Raikhel and William Garriott eds. 2013. Addiction Trajectories.

Bringing anthropological perspectives to bear on addiction, the contributors to this collection highlight the contingency of addiction as a category of human knowledge and experience. The collection's editors suggest "addiction trajectories" as a useful rubric for analyzing the changing meanings of addiction across time, place, institutions, and individual lives. Pursuing three primary trajectories, the contributors show how addiction comes into being as an object of knowledge, a site of therapeutic intervention, and a source of subjective experience.
