International Handbook on Alcohol and Culture


The first authoritative guide to how the world drinks, this reference details alcohol use in different countries and cultures. Each chapter, written by an expert contributor, shows how drinking relates to religion, custom, age, gender, class, economics, social policy, and other factors. The result is a multicultural guide to beliefs, practices, and attitudes about alcohol around the world.
