Unique blend of historical investigation, cross-cultural comparison, and in-depth analysis, draws parallels between past traditions of aggression and the present-day problem of drunkenness on the Pacific island of Truk in the Caroline Island group. Author demonstrates that many of our beliefs about drinking and drunkenness may be faulty and that a genuine understanding demands a social and cultural approach as well as a medical one.
