AbstractThis book presents a penetrating analysis of what governments can do to reduce the scale of alcohol-related problems through the design and implementation of national policies. In nine chapters, international experts present research results and experiences useful in clarifying the many alternative approaches and disputed issues generated by the complexities of alcohol control. Concerned with providing concrete guidance rather than abstract generalizations, the book gives readers a chance to view the reservations and policy recommendations expressed by a diverse group of professionals, including political scientists, economists, and representatives of government and industry as well as sociologists, mental health professionals, epidemiologists and experts in substance abuse.
