Editorial Reviews

Review

"Contested Meanings collects important work that will have broad appeal. A consistent theme in Gusfield's work is the conceptualization of problems. That theme is continued here, both at a societal level, in his discussions of alternative conceptualizations of drinking, drinking problems, and driving problems, and at a face-to-face level, in his observational studies of tavern behavior and its relation to drinking-driver arrests & processing. There is no equivalent book in this field."-Robin Room, Addiction Research Foundation -- Robin Room, Addiction Research Foundation
