Editorial Reviews

?The compilers offer an excellent and thorough attempt to identify research that focuses on alcoholism in the elderly. The book has five chapters: literature review, overview of articles, books and book chapters, empirical studies, and miscellaneous works. The book deals with the need for detection, treatment, and prevention of alcoholism in older adults. It is a toss-up as to which part of the book is better--the 50 page literature overview or the annotated lists. Highly recommended for health care providers, ministers, social workers, service agencies, addiction professionals, and students of these disciplines, as well as for friends and families of alcoholics.?-Choice
