This is an absolute classic in the ethnography of addiction--it influenced a lot of people so I almost feel bad for giving it only three stars. It's just that cognitive anthropology in the 1960s was so weird. I don't really understand all the drive for building taxonomies. But this is linguistically and methodologically interesting in a number of ways.
