Om boka

This text provides up-to-date, comprehensive, and accessible information about alcohol use in western society and other cultures.

In 2009, President Barack Obama hosted a friendly "beer summit" on the White House lawn in an attempt to diffuse a racially charged incident between a Caucasian policeman and an African American professor. In the United States, beer and other alcoholic beverage companies are often the main advertisers during television sporting event coverage. A study has found that 44 percent of American college students participate in binge drinking, while the NHTSA reports that over 31 percent of traffic fatalities involve a driver with an illegal blood-alcohol content level. In our culture, consumption of alcohol is both widely accepted as a healthy social norm and condemned as a crime.



Alcohol provides information about how alcohol acts upon the body, the social problems related to alcohol use, medical disorders connected to alcohol use, alcohol use throughout world cultures and the American population, and public policy issues. This book also contains sections on adolescent and college student alcohol use.









Provides a chronological presentation of alcohol consumption in world cultures, American society, public policy, and related issues



Includes a bibliography and index to facilitate further reading and direct access to information on specific topics

Om forfatteren

Alcohol use is firmly entrenched in popular culture; its abuse is even often tolerated. Yet the consumption of alcohol is directly tied to major public health issues and socioeconomic problems throughout society, and the related costs-in both dollars and loss of human life-are staggering.Peter L. Myers, PhD, is the editor of the Journal of Ethnicity in Substance Abuse.
