"This book approaches the subject of drinking with a predominantly descriptive orientation, focusing on what people do and what they say. By way of illustrative case studies, captivating images, and an authoritative yet conversational writing style, it delivers a full perspective about the range of variation we find when we look at drinking as a peculiarly human phenomenon." "Together these chapters fill a gap in the literature on drinking patterns. They do so in an accessible and informative style that a truly unlimited worldwide audience as well as social scientists, social psychologists, anthropologists, and public health professionals will appreciate."--Jacket

International handbook on alcohol and culture by Dwight B Heath( Book )

8 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first authoritative guide to how the world drinks, this reference details alcohol use in different countries and cultures. Variation is striking, with alcohol sometimes a food, a sacrament, a symbol, a tool, a tranquilizer, a medicine, a love potion, or an object of scornÑoften with very different meanings and uses in a single country. This volume reveals multicultural and ethnic beliefs, practices, and attitudes about drinking around the world.''An extensive introduction discusses the close link between alcohol and culture and provides a foundation for the rest of the book. Each of the following chapters is written by an expert contributor and discusses alcohol and culture in a particular country. Chapters discuss historical trends, drinking among ethnic and religious minorities, national policies, and social outcomes. Countries range from industrial nations known for their alcohol research, to developing nations and to places famous for drinking. A concluding chapter highlights important similarities and differences

Viracocha était un grand dieu ayant créé les cieux et la terre. Il créa l'homme et lui enseigna comment vivre. A son départ, il promit de revenir. Les Aymara et les peuples Quechua vivent avec les descendants des conquistadors espagnols, les Mestizos. Ces derniers maintiennent leur domination sur les populations Aymara. Jours de marché et jours de fêtes sont autant d'occasions, tour à tour de façon bienveillante et abusive, d'affirmer leur domination sur les structures sociales ayamara. Ces Mestizos sont appelés "viracochas."
