  2. For a first class overview of methodological problems involved and shortcomings of these kinds of research cf Fazey, 1977.2
  3. Produced very cheaply by the English in India.
  4. For a study about opium use in China during the last centuries Kramer investigated a large number of sources. His conclusion: "For whatever reason, most evidence suggests that moderation in the consumption of smoking opium was the rule, in China and elsewhere. As with alcohol today, it exacted a heavy toll from some people and caused moderate disability for even larger numbers."
