Overview

Jewish Alcoholism And Drug Addiction by Steven Berg

This comprehensive annotated bibliography is the first to cover Jewish alcoholism and drug addiction in detail, with 583 citations to scholarly and popular books, articles, and reports. A research consultant dealing with substance abuse, Steven Berg describes general, empirical, and theoretical studies, first-person accounts, and case studies. He compares Jewish alcoholism and addiction to other religious and ethnic group behavior. His chapters are organized also to give information about various Jewish minority alcoholism and addiction, recovery programs and the role of the rabbi in them, alcoholism in Israel, and literary portrayals of Jewish alcoholics and addicts. Author, title, and subject indexes make this guide easily accessible to researchers dealing with health and medical issues, ethnic studies, and the psychology of substance abuse.
