This volume provides an in-depth look at the genetic influences that contribute to the development of alcoholism. Part I: Epidemiologic Studies contains five chapters that examine the various approaches employed in the study of the genetics of alcoholism. It provides a historical perspective and details all the essentials of this subject. Part II: Selective Breeding Studies highlights the results of research involving the selective breeding of rodents. This type of research has produced homogenous strains exhibiting specific behavioral responses considered significant in the development and maintenance of alcohol dependence. The studies presented in Part III: Phenotypic Studies investigate and analyze phenotypic markers that serve as correlates to the genotypic determinants of alcoholism. Through its broad scope, this volume provides for the first time a panoramic view of the knowledge available on the hereditary influences of alcoholism.
"An extraordinarily concise and comprehensive look at the studies conducted by scientists in their efforts to define and treat this prevalent and destructive illness...Thorough, well-organized and directed in its approach. Presenting complex material for a diverse audience is never easy, but given the scope of this work, coupled with the fact that there were multiple contributing authors, this is an excellent text."--Applied Cytogenetics "A timely and well-integrated review of the genetics of alcoholism...A strong point for this book is its depth and scholarly referencing of evidence for major points....I recommend this book to a broad range of clinicians as well as researchers who are interested in up-to-date and comprehensive review of the genetics of alcoholism...as well as concise reviews of powerful methods of genetic methodology...An excellent opportunity to broaden one's understanding of the genetics of this most important and destructive disorder."--The Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease
