This book is a survey of current literature on chronic alcoholism and alcohol addiction. The authors are interested, however, not only in those individuals who are unable to give up alcohol (i.e. the addicts), but also in the more numerous abnormal drinkers all of whom are potential secondary addicts, who have developed a physiological and ultimately also a psychological need in the proceed of habituation, but in whose management of life alcohol has not played an essentially dominant role.
