“Absinthe: behind the emerald mask”. 
Int J Addict. 1982 Aug 19;17(6):1015-29.
There are a number of approaches or paradigms which can be employed in the study of drug-taking behaviors and experiences. Some approaches are relatively singular and narrow in scope, being epistemologically related to a defined discipline. This study of the widespread use of absinthe in 19th-century France utilizes several descriptors (e.g., the social milieu, ritual of use, aesthetic experience, personal experiences, and social perceptions) in addition to the chemical and medical points of view to provide a holistic framework for the study of this unique social phenomenon.
