Editorial Reviews

Michael Easton
This 13th volume in the series Recent Developments In Alcoholism, a joint publication of the American Society of Addiction Medicine and the Research Society on Alcoholism, comprehensively reviews recent advances regarding the relationship between alcohol use and violence. Its goal is to help researchers and clinicians identify the biological and social factors contributing to the comorbidity of alcohol and aggression. This volume is intended for researchers and clinicians in this field. It is also may be of tremendous help to those in related fields such as public health, public policy, and forensic psychiatry. The editor is well renowned in this field and brings together an array of experts to write the various chapters. The book is divided into sections that focus on epidemiology, neurophysiology, psychology, and socioeconomic and family issues. Each of the sections is extremely thorough and covers a wide range of information. The book is reasonably illustrated with helpful tables and charts. The references are extensive, relevant, and up-to-date. A very comprehensive review of old and recent evidence linking alcohol use to aggression, this book is an excellent and timely accumulation of important information regarding an increasingly recognized problem. This volume will be a valuable resource to investigators, clinicians, students, and others.
Explains current research and concepts in the relationship between alcohol and violence, concentrating on epidemiology, neurobiology, psychology, and family issues. Chapters discuss aspects including ethnic differences in alcohol and spouse abuse, alcohol and violence- related injuries in the emergency room, serotonin in early-onset alcoholism, alcohol and cocaine interactions and aggressive behaviors, and alcohol, drugs, and violence in children's lives.
