Synopsis

Medical and Social Aspects of Alcohol Abuse by Boris Tabakoff

Alcohol use affects, either directly or indirectly, nearly all facets of Western civi- lization. Eastern cultures are also not exempt from the influence of alcohol, and the present decade has been a time of increased alcohol use in all parts of the world. The problems of alcohol abuse and alcoholism are of concern to a variety of professionals in the biomedical and psychosocial health sciences, and-although the alcohol research literature contains much information on the relationships between alcohol ingestion and physiological, neurochemical, pharmacologic, genetic, environmental, and psychological effects in humans and in subhuman spe- cies-there is at the present time no advanced textbook that integrates the avail- able information for use by both students and professionals. The writing of Medical and Social Aspects of Alcohol Abuse constitutes an attempt to create a scholarly reference and resource for students, researchers, prac- ticing clinicians, and paraprofessionals who wish to understand the complex inter- play of factors related to acute and chronic alcohol intoxication, the effects of alco- hol on body functions, and treatment approaches to alcohol abusers and alcoholics.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
