Murphy and Marsha Rosenbaum https://books.google.by/books?hl=ru&lr=& This case study was conducted by women in the 90s. It is dedicated to two women, Monica and Becky, and the history of their drug addiction. In particular, identifying common features and characteristics. Through interviews, researchers found out their biographies, assumptions and opinions about what influenced their addiction. The text itself is divided into three parts. The first part describes the present moment in which the heroines are, the second of their lives before drugs, and the second after. The main value of this work is that it is one of the first studies that came so close to the addicts themselves.Indeed, in the past, drug research has included itself mostly only general statistics. And having approached these people, Murphy and Rosenbaum gave us the opportunity to look at their life and personal stories. In my opinion, this work is still relevant today. Because it is understandable to both sociologists and ordinary people who want to find out some scientific data about this topic. 2) “New York City Clubs Kids: A Contextual Understanding of Drug Use” By Dina Perrone https://books.google.by/books?hl=ru&lr This study focuses on drug use in clubs. In 2004, Dina Perron became interested in the growing popularity of drug use among young people. And focused her attention on parties that were famous for such. With the help of an informant, she selected a group of young people who bought and used drugs in various clubs in New York. Within this group, she launched the same informator. This work is interesting primarily for its methods. At first, the collection of information was carried out by an informant who followed the individuals in secret. As soon as the network of these informants grew, even later the observed ones were informed about the surveillance, and in the end some even agreed to be interviewed. And all this work turned out to be very fruitful. Perrone was able to get an average portrait of a member of these groups. But also personally talk with many, find out their origins, their professions and even how they started using drugs. Plus, while having observation of their interaction within the group. In my opinion, the work is interesting because it combines a variety of methods of sociological research.
