BACK COVER #Societies' drinking customs and habits reflect their fabrics, tensions, and dynamics. Do the Irish drink more than Jews, or American Indians more than Japanese-Americans? Do Catholics drink more than Methodists? Social scientists have studied the drinking practices of different cultures and of America's many immigrant groups - a microcosm of the world's ethnic groups. Using historical methods, observational techniques, and international statistics, this book separates myth from reality and discusses modern trends.
