Congratulations to Associate Professor Kristin Swenson on the publication of her book book Lifestyle Drugs and the Neoliberal Family. Published by international academic publishing company Peter Lang, Lifestyle Drugs analyzes the commercial promotion of pharmaceuticals as solutions to social and economic problems. "Advertisements for lifestyle drugs promise to make us sexier, happier, and better liked; not to cure us of a disorder, but, ultimately, to make us better workers, suggesting that drugs do indeed work to keep us working," Swenson states in a recent press release.
