Summary "The central concern of this book is the relationship between an individual's drinking habits and social setting. The way in which a person drinks or does not drink is influenced by age, sex, religion, nationality, and possibly by personality and heredity. In spite of this, people's drinking habits frequently and, sometimes, dramatically change, as do their experiences of the problems which, if extreme or numerous enough, are sometimes called 'alcoholism.' This book is an empirical, rather than theoretical, work. It does not attempt to expound a general theory of either 'normal' or 'deviant' drinking"--introduction
