Collaboratively compiled and deftly co-edited by Malcom Maclachlan and Caroline Smythe, Binge Drinking & Youth Culture: Alternative Perspectives is a scholarly discussion of binge drinking and its connection to serious social problems such as suicide, especially with regard to the youth culture in Ireland and the UK. Multiple perspectives draw heavily upon statistical research, painting a clear portrait of social ills and the individual, social, and cultural attitudes that contribute to them--in one writer's term, the old adage that there is little to do in Ireland except go to the pub is all too close to the truth. Binge Drinking & Youth Culture acknowledges that there are no easy answers but strives to present as many facts and as much sociological insight as possible to aid in addressing the problems to public health. A superb reference text for college-level students of addictive drugs and behavior.
