Stimson, Gerry V and Grant, Marcus and Choquet, Marie and Garrison, Preston (2007) Drinking in context: patterns, interventions, and partnerships. New York: Routledge.

Drinking in Context is intended to complement existing volumes dealing with international alcohol policy by focusing on three main themes: drinking patterns, targeted interventions, and partnership development. An understanding that patterns of drinking are reliable predictors of outcomes has led to a growing realization that alcohol policies and prevention strategies need to focus on excessive or irresponsible drinking. As a result, there has been a shift towards interventions that address the targeted reduction of harm. These approaches recognize socio-cultural differences and avoid trying to impose a one-size-fits-all solution. In this context, muti-stakeholder partnerships offer an excellent opportunity to promote the complex mix of measures required by each society. Shared responsibilities lead to shared solutions. The book gives special emphasis to three issues that are of great concern throughout the world—alcohol-impaired driving, young people, and social disruption. It explains how todevelop action plans based on available evidence and leading to feasible solutions.

The volume is directed towards a broad readership, including policy-makers, public health and social policy specialists, health advocates, scientists and scholars, beverage alcohol industry members, educators, and prevention program staff.
