?Barnes and Augustino have used their research and library skills to provide the most thorough and comprehensive listing to date of the literature on alcohol abuse in the family. All major database sources on alcohol and family were searched to provide more than 6,000 references to the worldwide scholarly literature, primarily from the last 25 years (1961-1986), with a few citations for earlier years. Complete journal titles are used. The work is extremely accurate... The excellent introductory chapter treats topics such as genetic and environmental transmission, alcoholism and familial psychiatric disorders, marital interaction, family violence, and family therapy and treatment, and is cogent and objective. This bibliography should serve as a beginning for all reviews of the literature and will greatly aid research in this important area of study. It is essential for all medical, academic, and large public libraries.??
