Going well beyond the merely descriptive, it spells out the crucial implications that the insights of set and setting hold for questions of medicine and drug policy. It suggests that drug policy has generally been barking up the wrong tree. Rather than focusing on the types of drugs people use, drug policy should focus on how people use them. In addition, greater medical efficacy gains can be achieved by focusing on considerations of set and setting, rather than on drug development. The book is unique in the broad, in-depth historical and cultural analysis it affords to the subject of context (set and setting) and its crucial role in shaping drug effects across times and cultures. It is the first book to deeply and thoroughly engage the idea that social and cultural forces and themes shape drug experiences within a culture, by providing an account which meshes together the social, the cultural, the medical, the historical and the pharmacological. .

A heartwrenching YA coming of age story about three siblings on a roadtrip in search of healing. With a strong family, the best friend a guy could ask for, and a budding romance with the girl of his dreams, life shows promise for Teodoro “T” Avila. But he takes some hard hits the summer before senior year when his nearly perfect brother, Manny, returns from a tour in Iraq with a devastating case of PTSD. In a desperate effort to save Manny from himself and pull their family back together, T’s fiery sister, Xochitl, hoodwinks her brothers into a cathartic road trip. Told through T’s honest voice, this is a candid exploration of mental illness, socioeconomic pressures, and the many inescapable highs and lows that come with growing up—including falling in love.
