Weekend Warriors: Alcohol in a Micronesian Cultureby Mac Marshall, Robert B. Edgerton (Editor), L. L. Langness (Editor)
In a unique blend of historical investigation, cross-cultural comparison, and in-depth analysis, Weekend Warriors draws parallels between past traditions of aggression and the present-day problem of drunkenness on the Pacific island of Truk. Marshall demonstrates that many of our beliefs about drinking and drunkenness may be faulty and that a genuine understanding demands a social and cultural approach as well as a medical one.
