'It is a fascinating and well constructed work in a rather under-researched are in political science...and richly informed by the conceptual and analytical tools of comparative politics.' West European Politics
"This well-written book is carefully documented and richly informative..." American Journal of Sociology
"[This book] is an excellent example of how comparative public policy can be done. One of the great strengths of Kurzer's well-written and well-researched book is that she draws subtle conclusions that go no further than what the evidence bears.... Comparative public policy specialists who focus on moral regulation--and especially drug policy--need to pay attention to this book." Governance: An International Journal of Policy, Administration, and Institutions
"An important contribution to the emerging literature on Europeanization..." Perspectives on Politics
"Anyone interested in alcohol, drugs, abortion, morality, cultural change, and Europe should read this book." Foreign Affairs
