This new edition in the Hot Topics series offers a clear, comprehensive, and balanced discussion of the issue of teens drinking alcohol. The text talks about the reasons teens drink, the history of drinking age laws, the emergence of hosting laws and punishment of parents who supply alcohol to their teenage children, and other methods being used to prevent underage drinking. The problematic drinking culture among underage college students and the prevalence and dangers of binge drinking are also included. The text also describes the particular dangers of drinking for teenagers and how alcohol affects the teenage brain.
"This series has added new books ever since it began in 2006. It presents contemporary topics such as AIDS, organic foods, and online social networking in a format that encourages research and further study. Complex issues are well-researched, well-written, and supported by photographs and charts as necessary."
