Book Description:

"Highly nuanced and innovative.... It is on the topic of efficacy and clinical practice that Raikhel makes his most original contribution. The author offers a nuanced and ultimately sympathetic take on the state of contemporary Soviet narcology.... Governing Habits offers a highly convincing defense of the principled refusal of its author to take familiar, sweeping positions and instead focus on the fascinating particularities of the post-Soviet narcological practices and epistemological commitments.... Governing Habits makes an important contribution to the anthropology of medicine through its vivid exploration of a history of medicalization that radically diverge from the 'two minds' of American psychiatry (Luhrmann 2001) and, by extension, the practice of addiction medicine in North America."
