Black Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism: An Annotated Bibliography

Synopsis

"Alcoholism and alcohol abuse continue to be recognized as significant and growing problems among the general population, and have begun to be recognized among black Americans. This fine work brings together the burgeoning medical, economic, social, and historical literature on black drinking and alcohol abuse. This work will save hours of sorting through the literature of many disciplines and variety of formats. Selected references from the literature date from the 1940s to the present, and include more research-based studies than descriptive ones. The work is arranged chronologically, with subject and author indexes in the back of the book. Entries include a complete bibliographic citation (author, title, imprint) and a one- to two- paragraph informative abstract. A fine choice for academic and larger public libraries." ARBA
