Additional Book Details

The SAGE Encyclopedia of Pharmacology and Society explores the social and policy sides of the pharmaceutical industry and its pervasive influence in society. While many technical STM works explore the chemistry and biology of pharmacology and an equally large number of clinically oriented works focus on use of illegal drugs, substance abuse, and treatment, there is virtually nothing on the immensely huge business (“Big Pharma”) of creating, selling, consuming, and regulating legal drugs.


 


With this new Encyclopedia, the topic of socioeconomic, business and consumer, and legal and ethical issues of the pharmaceutical industry in contemporary society around the world are addressed.


 


Key Features:

800 signed articles, authored by prominent scholars, are arranged A-to-Z and published in a choice of electronic or print formats
Although arranged A-to-Z, a Reader's Guide in the front matter groups articles by thematic areas
Front matter also includes a Chronology highlighting significant developments in this field
All articles conclude with Further Readings and Cross References to related articles
Back matter includes an annotated Resource Guide to further research, a Glossary, Appendices (e.g., statistics on the amount and types of drugs prescribed, etc.), and a detailed Index
The Index, Reader’s Guide, and Cross References combine for search-and-browse capabilities in the electronic edition 

 


The SAGE Encyclopedia of Pharmacology and Society is an authoritative and rigorous source addressing the pharmacology industry and how it influences society, making it a must-have reference for all academic libraries as a source for both students and researchers to utilize.
