This edition in the At Issue series offers readers a comprehensive look at the issues surrounding alcohol abuse. The title explores the impact of alcohol consumption on health, the state of underage drinking and the effectiveness of a legalized drinking age, whether or not alcoholism can be considered a disease, the effectiveness of step programs in addressing alcohol abuse, and the long-term effects of alcoholic parents on their children.
"An excellent source for debates, discussions and reports, this series should be offered to young adults who are able to read, analyze, and think critically about the many points of view presented."
