A history of problem gambling
- "Peter Ferentzy and Nigel E. Turner The History of Problem Gambling: Temperance, Substance Abuse, Medicine, and Metaphors This book documents the history of ideas about problem gambling and its link to addictive disorders. Using a combination of literature review and conceptual and linguistic analysis, The History of Problem Gambling explores how conceptions of problem gambling have changed over time. Authors Ferentzy and Turner examine the religious, economic, socio-cultural, and medical influences on the development of the concept of problem gambling as a disease, along with the ways in which such ideas were influenced by attitudes towards substance abuse. The history of mental illness, notably as it pertains to themes such as loss of control over behavior, is also addressed. The book concludes with a discussion of problem gambling and addiction in general - their current status and future prospects - with an eye on which ideas about problem gambling seem most promising and which should perhaps be left behind. This book will be of interest to psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, nurses, addiction counselors, researchers, historians, public health professionals, and also persons who have experienced problems with gambling or substance use."
- "Il gioco d'azzardo in prospettiva storica, dai rituali del passato alla teoria delle probabilità, dai legami con la religione al crimine organizzato, per giungere alla politossicodipendenza, dove la patologia del gioco si lega all'abuso di sostanze e a vari comportamenti di dipendenza. Alcuni capitoli importanti del testo descrivono il gioco patologico agli inizi del Novecento, con i primi esempi di medicalizzazione e controllo degli impulsi su base psicoanalitica. Il capitolo finale parla della realtà odierna, con le prospettive per il futuro."
