Ted Goldberg is professor of Sociology. He has written eight books on illegal drug consumption, as well as a number of scientific articles and book chapters. He has also actively participated in the drug debate in the Swedish media.
In order to gain knowledge as to what lies behind the decision to seek out the drug scene in Stockholm, and to remain on it in spite of all its negative consequences, Ted Goldberg did participant observation studies for a period covering 4½ years. In his writings he develops a theory to explain these processes.
Currently his primary interest is the development of Swedish drug policy.
