American Experiences with Alcohol
This book offers unusual strengths in several fields: It is a collection that sheds new light on important aspects of American culture; it incorporates a variety of fresh approaches that anthropologists have only recently brought to bear on the study of alcohol use and its outcomes; and it gives us insights into the several meanings of alcoholism that have rarely been articulated, despite the enormous volume of literature that exists on the subject. The contributions all appear here for the first time, and they are presented in styles that are clear and generally concise and well organized, without being monotonous or formulaic.
