In this ambitious interdisciplinary study, James B. Jacobs provides the first comprehensive review and analysis of America's drunk driving problem and of America's anti-drunk driving policies and jurisprudence. In a clear and accessible style, he considers what has been learned, what is being done, and what constitutional limits exist to the control and enforcement of drunk driving.
A revision of Drug dosages and solutions workbook (1982). A workbook for nurses. Jacobs (law, New York U.) explains that the US historically has held an ambivalent attitude toward drunk driving, and shows how this ambivalence has affected the types of efforts we are willing to espouse to control the problem as well as the way our laws are constructed and interpreted. A paper edition (0-226-38978-2) is available for $12.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
