Oxford University Press, 2000 - 163 pagina's
A new edition of this classic text on the world's number one drug problem. Written in a clear and lively style by a world authority on alcoholism, the book is aimed at those who have alcohol problems and the people who share their lives. Throughout, it examines the social, psychological, and medical aspects of alcohol problems. The five years since publication of the 2nd edition have seen the conclusion of the massive Project MATCH study - undoubtedly the largest ever research project on the treatment of alcoholism and problem drinking. The new edition considers some of the findings from this project, and the implications they have for treatment methods. Other areas expanded include those on women and alcoholism and a look at recent results from studies into genetic causes of alcoholism.

Nursing Times '...readable, concise, and thorough.'

A modest, well-presented book, it is succinct and rarely wastes a word.' The Canberra times
