St. Clair, Harvey R (1991) Recognizing alcoholism and its effects: a mini-guide. Basel: Karger.

Alcoholism is the most frequently missed diagnosis in medical care, the object of the greatest prejudice, the most frequently mismanaged illness in treatment, and often the most neglected topic in medical school and postgraduate training. This synopsis of alcoholism is broad enough and basic enough to be used as a mini-text for medical students and house staff, and at the same time its practical organization makes it a reference source for all those interested in the field. The basic essentials of current knowledge are highlighted. Coverage includes an outline of the major treatment models, together with a more in-depth description of the psychiatric model of rehabilitation, considered the cutting edge in the field.
