Summary "The problem of alcohol-related disorder, whether hooliganism, aggression or violence, seems to be both a perennial and a worsening problem. This balanced study goes beyond the dramatic and not always accurate media accounts of the problem to present a comprehensive analysis of the factors behind and consequences of adolescent drinking."--BOOK JACKET. "That a problem exists is not in doubt, but what exactly do we mean when we talk about alcohol-related aggression and violence? Is it a new phenomenon? Why do young people drink/and or get into trouble? What harm does alcohol do to the health of young people whether their behaviour is anti-social or not? Is there a link between alcohol and other, illegal, drugs? What can be done to tackle the problem at a personal and at an organizational level?"--BOOK JACKET
"The authors of this accessible and informative account address some of the key issues surrounding alcohol and aggression with particular reference to adolescence. Drawing on the latest research evidence, with a minimum of psychological or sociological jargon, this book will be essential reading for all professionals working with adolescents, sociologists and concerned parents."--BOOK JACKET
