Women and Alcohol in Social Context : Mother's Ruin Revisited Paperback / softback
by Jan Waterson
Edited by Jo Campling
Drinking alcohol can be immensely pleasurable and life-enhancing.
On the other hand, it can be associated with danger and risk.
This book explores some of the implications of this dichotomy, which creates many policy and practice dilemmas, by a detailed exploration of the place of drinking in women's lives.
Interviews and case-studies show women's drinking practices to be constructive and autonomous responses to the social and material contexts of their lives.
