Subcultural Differences in Drinking Behavior in U. S. National Surveys and Selected European Studies

  • Don Cahalan
Part of the NATO Conference Series book series (NATOCS, volume 7)

Abstract

It is particularly fortunate that the international conference on which this volume reports is being held in Scandinavia, in view of the many contributions to alcoholism made by researchers in all the Scandinavian countries during the last 20 years. This Scandinavian research has been an inspiration and material benefit to alcohol researchers in the U. S. for many years. We are looking forward to an expansion of collaborative research efforts with Scandinavian and other European colleagues in the immediate future.
