RESEARCH SECTION.

The Grog Book: Strengthening Indigenous Community Action on Alcohol written by Maggie Brady won an award as a single rifle in the Australian Awards for Excellence in Educational Publishing announced at the Australian Book Fair in Sydney on 3 June 1999. The book was written as part of Maggie's AIATSIS visiting research fellowship work between 1996 and 1998 and was designed by Maureen McKenzie-Taylor with illustrations by Alex Tyers. Publication and free distribution to Indigenous communities was made possible by funding from the Commonwealth Office of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH).

The book is full of ideas and case studies of community strategies for dealing with alcohol problems, aimed at mobilising action and intervention. It is interesting, highly readable and has been widely distributed to health services and other organisations.

Copies of the book can be purchased from the Government Info shops Australia-wide.
