This comprehensive handbook is a "one-stop-shop" for all researchers involved in the field of alcohol-related harm at the whole body or cellular level. Over 100 chapters provide abundant information of a wide range of topics that extend from the evolutionary aspects of alcohol consumption and the prevalence of alcohol misuse to programmed cell death. Each chapter is highly illustrated with tables and figures making this a valuable reference for students, clinicians and researchers alike.
*Over 100 chapters conveniently divided into 3 sections
*Represents a 'one-stop-shop' of information with suitable indexing of the various pathways and processes
*Each chapter is highly illustrated with tables as well as figures

"...an excellent addition to a reference library and to the field of addictionology. ...a great reference -- all you want to know in 2005 regarding alcohol and its medical consequences. ...I highly recommed it for researchers in the field and medical libraries." - DOODY'S (2005)
