Alcoholism: Genetic Culpability Or Social Irresponsibility? : the Challenge of Innovative Methods to Determine Final Outcomes
Despite the plethora of books on alcohol abuse and alcoholism, Alcoholism: Genetic Culpability or Social Irresponsibility is unique. It departs from a generic version of alcoholism; it examines the concepts, rationale, and research findings of all the various aspects of alcoholism and places them into two camps, namely the genetic and the social. Then, Marshall's book deals specifically with the issue of 'social irresponsibility' as a central feature in alcohol abuse; social irresponsibility carries implications for the individual as well as governments' policies. This book will be useful for academics and professionals who are concerned about the widespread problem of alcoholism. Health professional, social workers, and legislators will find this book invaluable in uncovering the nature of this phenomenon.
