Description

Alcoholism: A Review of Its Characteristics, Etiology, Treatment, and Controversies provides an accurate picture of the current state of research and treatment effectiveness in the field of alcoholism. Using compelling evidence, Irving Maltzman describes how the field has been distorted by the behavior therapy approach.
A distinguished experimental psychologist at the University of California, Los Angeles, Professor Maltzman has written a comprehensive, important work marked by incisive argument. Alcoholism is an excellent reference for academics as well as professionals working in addictions treatment.
