Here are included twenty-nine lectures with the discussion given at the Yale Summer School of Alcohol Studies during 1944. The subjects include considerations of metabolism and physiology of alcohol, the relation of alcohol to nutrition, the psychologic and psychiatric aspects of excessive drinking and inebriety, the relation of alcohol to pauperism and traffic, the medical treatment of the inebriate and similar topics. Altogether, the book provides about as complete a consideration of the subject as is anywhere available. The concluding chapter is a consideration of Alcoholics Anonymous, the most recent group movement for self control by inebriates.
