Summary Alcohol: Minimising the Harm presents a non ideological and pragmatic review of the effectiveness of key strategies designed to achieve a significant reduction in levels of problem drinking. These strategies are described and critically assessed by some of the world's leading authorities on the use of alcohol and its related problems. Alcohol: Minimising the Harm is wide-ranging and international in scope, including evidence from non-industrial societies. The evidence is considered within the context of the history of alcohol control policies and the ongoing polemic concerning the harm minimisation approach to problems associated not only with alcohol but also tobacco and illicit drugs. Strategies and policies are critically and pragmatically assessed in the light of the question, 'What works?'
