The second volume in the ICAP Book Series on Alcohol in Society, edited by Marcus Grant, provides a current, objective, and comprehensive assessment of drinking practices and alcohol misuse in areas of the world undergoing major socioeconomic changes. This book offers a series of case studies that assess alcohol issues in four regions (Asia, Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, and sub-Saharan Africa) and four countries (China, India, Mexico, and Russia), considers the role of the beverage alcohol industry in emerging markets, and suggests a set of guidelines that address alcohol misuse issues.
