Kilcommins, Shane and O'Donnell, Ian, eds. (2003) Alcohol, society and law. Chichester: Barry Rose Law Publishers.

This book consists of a selection of essays commissioned by editors on the subject of Alcohol, Society and Law. Ireland has the second highest consumption of alcohol per person of any country in the world, taking second place to Luxembourg. This book is superb in its coverage of the very wide range of various aspects of alcohol - its use and misuse. Although most of the essays relate to Ireland, the editors have included work on the problems as they occur in England, Wales and Scotland, for, as they remark, although the main focus remains on Ireland, there is more than a common legal tradition between the countries. The editors say in their Preface that it was their ambition to bring together a collection of papers that otherwise would never be found between a common set of covers. They have succeeded in this comprehensive, yet most readable of volumes. Judge James O'Sullivan writes an informative Foreword.
