Alcohol and Emerging Markets: Patterns, Problems, and Responses (1998)
The second volume in the ICAP Book Series on Alcohol in Society, edited by Marcus Grant, provides a current, objective, and comprehensive assessment of drinking practices and alcohol misuse in areas of the world undergoing major socioeconomic changes. This book offers a series of case studies that assess alcohol issues in four regions (Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, and sub-Saharan Africa) and four countries (China, India, Mexico, and Russia), considers the role of the beverage alcohol industry in emerging markets, and suggests a set of guidelines that address alcohol misuse issues.
Drinking Patterns and Their Consequences (1998)
Alcohol policies in many countries have long been based on the assumption that a wide range of health and social problems associated with the abuse of alcohol can be directly correlated with average daily per capita alcohol consumption. Edited by Marcus Grant and Jorge Litvak, the first volume in the ICAP Book Series on Alcohol in Society proposes a new comprehensive theoretical framework that focuses instead on drinking patterns and their role as predictors of risks or benefits associated with drinking. The authors explore the implications of such a paradigm shift for the shaping of research, prevention, and more sensitive national alcohol policies.
