Description :  This book is an attempt to understand addiction and its causes and search through history for certain trends that might help give an insight into this disorder. It also aims to delve into the mind of an addict to look at the triggers that start the process of addiction. It thus intends to look at addiction not only scientifically but also through social and cultural markers, including family and occupation that could help in its treatment.
