This is the first volume of three, outlined in the introduction, proposing the independent and unbiased study of the medical and sociological aspects of alcohol. The present volume is given over chiefly to a discussion of the clinical aspects of the problem of alcohol and the clinical effects of its prolonged ingestion. It is divided into two parts. Part I contains chapters on alcohol addiction and its treatment by Karl Bowman and E. M. Jellinek, and on alcoholic mental disorders by the same authors.
