Rare book

The range of social and medical problems associated with alcohol and the history of related treatment methods (including the temperance movement, prohibition, aa and a range of contemporary approaches) are considered here. Griffith Edwards identifies what can be learned from this experience and the accompanying science so as to set more rational and effective policies in the future.

In this book, Griffith Edwards uses both history and chemistry to explore the whole issue of alcohol. Do current treatments work? Does Alcoholics Anonymous have the answer? Armed with the best solid information science, history, and sociology have to offer, Edwards asks how, in the light of this knowledge, society might in the future better handle this pleasure-giving, somewhat dangerous drug. Can society get its pleasure out of alcohol without the inevitable suffering that accompanies misuse?

Griffith Edwards initiated services such as a therapeutic community for heroin addicts and a day centre for drug and alcohol users - all novelties in their day. The concept of alcohol dependence is now so entrenched in general awareness and so fundamental to scientific thought that it is difficult to remember a time when the syndrome was unrecognised – and yet the original, provisional description appeared in the British Medical Journal only in 1976.

Griffith Edwards made empirical contributions early in his career to the literature on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), but the attitude he adopted towards AA and other peer-led mutual help initiatives constitutes an even more important legacy

Griffith Edwards made empirical contributions early in his career to the literature on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), but the attitude he adopted towards AA and other peer-led mutual help initiatives constitutes an even more important legacy. Unlike many treatment professionals who dismissed the value of AA or were threatened by its non-professional approach, Edwards was consistently respectful of the organization. Can society get its pleasure out of alcohol without the inevitable suffering that accompanies misuse?
