Desire and Craving (October 1992)
A Cultural Theory of Alcoholism
Pertti Alasuutari - Author

"This work is an imaginative synthesis drawing on a number of disparate literatures and traditions of analysis.

The book can be seen as the first book-length consideration of the cultural construction and culture-boundedness of alcoholism concepts, and thus is likely to be referenced for years to come.
