Baker & Taylor
A history of alcohol examines its many forms, including cocktails, medicine, and as a religious symbol, revealing a liquid that has the power to either provide supreme pleasure or utter destruction.

McMillan Palgrave
A complete popular history of alcohol from biology to social policy to treatment, from the Egyptians to the 21st Century.

Alcohol can be an item of diet, a medicine, sometimes an element in religious ritual. It is a valued object for the connoisseur, a traded commodity and a symbol of national pride (wine for instance in France, whisky in Scotland). 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. Already considered a classic in the field in England, Alcohol has proved to be fascinating reading for drinkers and nondrinkers alike.
