Editorial Reviews

?Watts and Wright, collaborators on numerous articles on black alcohol abuse, offer an annotated listing of 553 items. Organized by date of publication, the first item listed, on Negro bootleggers in North Carolina, appeared in 1943; the last, on the incidence of alcohol-related cancers among blacks, in 1985. The bulk of the articles (456) appeared after 1975. The compilers intend that the bibliography be used by practitioners and professionals alike. To that end, they append a list of social service and information agencies dealing with substance abuse generally, as well as agencies whose particular concern is black people. This useful one that other compilers of bibliographies on social issues could well emulate. The compilers might have noted in the index those articles on alcohol abuse by black women and youth. That aside, this up-to-date compilation should find wide use among researchers of alcohol abuse, students of public policy and social work, and practitioners in those fields. Students at all levels also will find this bibliography the best place to begin their research on the subject of black alcohol abuse.?-Choice
