Drinking beverage alcohol is a widespread source of individual and social pleasure in most countries around the world. Yet, some drinking patterns can lead to serious physical, mental, and social harms. Drinking in Context is intended to complement existing volumes dealing with international alcohol policy by focusing on three main themes: drinking patterns, targeted interventions, and partnership development. An understanding that patterns of drinking are important predictors of outcomes has led to a growing realization that alcohol policies and prevention strategies need to focus on excessive or irresponsible drinking. As a result, there has been a shift towards interventions that address the targeted reduction of harm. These approaches recognize socio-cultural differences and avoid trying to impose a one-size-fits-all solution. In this context, multi-stakeholder partnerships offer an excellent opportunity to promote the complex mix of measures required by each society. Shared responsibilities lead to shared solutions.

"This is a very timely book on alcohol drinking prototypes, concerted programmatic interventions, and multi-stakeholder alliances toward alcohol prevention and control. A must read book by all policy makers, program designers, and health professionals." - Manoj Sharma, Editor, Journal of Alcohol and Drug Education, and Health Promotion and Education Faculty, University of Cincinnati "If policy-makers pay attention, this book could change the way they look at reducing the risks of heavy drinking, and maybe even get them to recognize some of the benefits of moderate drinking. A focus on drinking patterns and the necessity to adapt to local circumstances, combined with an appeal for collaboration among various interested constituencies, is far more realistic than the traditional aim merely to reduce consumption." - Dwight B. Heath, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Anthropology, Brown University "This volume does exactly as its title suggests. It provides examples of the different cultural contexts within which alcohol problems are evident. It examines interventions, how they fit within their cultures and communities, and offers explanations of why they work. The book acknowledges the difficulties for policy makers and practitioners involved in planning and implementing interventions, and helpfully suggests criteria which could be used in their design. Its value lies in its contribution to the debate about effective interventions in alcohol problems, and the need to achieve a balance between population wide approaches and targeted interventions." - Jack Law, Chief Executive, Alcohol Focus Scotland, Glasgow "...this well-documented...book presents feasible solutions and action plans...Recommended." -CHOICE
