Editorial Reviews

D.J. Hanson
Essential for all libraries, this important contribution to the understanding of a significant social problem should become a classic.
Journal of Substance Misuse
For researchers, this is a detailed review of existing literature and a great new body of data and analysis to complement and extend knowledge in the field...It gives practitioners much needed information to help address the cognitive and behavioural effects on children of alcoholics, and how working on family strengthening and family harmony can build the resistance to reduce likelihood of problem drinking later in life.
Booknews
This study examines what happens to the children of parents with drinking problems when they grow up. The authors conclude that many children appear to be more resilient than has been supposed; that the risk of children of problem drinkers going on to have more problems in adulthood than other young people has been heavily overstated; and that these children are more disadvantaged by disharmony in the family than by whether a parent had a drinking problem.
