Summary "This book seeks to understand the nature of the connection between alcohol and crime, and the way the criminal justice system responds to the problem, providing a clear and accessible account and analysis of the subject. It draws upon a wide range of sources and research findings, and also sets the subject within a broader comparative context. It takes an interdisciplinary approach, exploring the role of alcohol in British society, the link between alcohol and crime as well as providing a legal analysis of different approaches that can be adopted as a response to alcohol-related offending." "This book also assesses recent government strategies to reduce alcohol-related crime and the disorder associated with it. It will be essential reading for anybody concerned with the issue and its many social, legal and criminological ramifications."--Jacket
