Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This new edition provides a welcome update of a text that has become a standard reference for researchers and teachers alike. Like the previous edition, this fine overview will stand as an important resource for a wide range of readers interested in theories of causation of drinking-related behaviors and problems and alcohol dependence." --Marc A. Schuckit, MD, Editor, Journal of Studies on Alcohol, Professor of Psychiatry, UCSD School of Medicine, Director, Alcohol Research Center, San Diego VA Medical Center

"In recent decades, psychology has made extraordinary advances in the understanding of alcohol misuse and how it can be rationally treated. This brilliantly produced text critically distills that knowledge base and makes it available to a wide audience of students, scholars, and practitioners. The volume is comprehensive and immensely authoritative." --Griffith Edwards, CBE, DSc, DM, FRCP, FRCPsych, Editor-in-Chief, Addiction, National Addiction Centre, London

Booknews
This new edition incorporates advances in psychological approaches to alcoholism made in the years since the original volume was published in 1986, at a time when models emphasized physiological rather than psychological understanding. Topics explored in 12 contributed chapters (including a conclusion by the editors) encompass theoretical approaches to tension-reduction, personality, expectancy, cognition, learning, and emotional response, as well as behavioral genetic models, and neurobiological bases of alcohol's psychological effects. The two editors are affiliated with SUNY at Buffalo Medical School. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
