"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."--BOOK JACKET

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

8 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 462 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

Borrachera y memoria : la experiencia de lo sagrado en los Andes by Thomas Abercrombie( )

1 edition published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hablar, del alcohol en una cultura chula tropieza con una doble dificultad por el mero hecho de tocar un objeto muy familiar, prosaico, común, y por lo tanto poco estudiado y aún menos pensado. Id primer obstáculo remite al filtro de nuestra propia experiencia cultural, histórica pues, del alcohol. Dado que cada pueblo o sociedad tiene su relación privilegiada con cierto alcohol (el vino en la tradición mediterránea, la cerveza en la Europa norteña, el saké en Japón, la chicha en América ...), el grupo que abusa de tal bebida es siempre el vecino, el "otro" que no "sabe tomar", según el código cultural del locutor en vigor. Cualquier bebida (y planta) estimulante aparece así, sea como símbolo máximo de convivialidad, sea como droga o veneno. La segunda dificultad remite a las condiciones de nuestro conocimiento de una sociedad indígena que ha sufrido varios siglos de dominio colonial. Se requiere aquí una doble encuesta: etnográfica, para apreciar la percepción interna del beber, e histórica para entender las transformaciones de estas mismas conductas y percepciones desde el momento inicial del contacto. Debemos vencer entonces un nuevo filtro, el de los documentos emitidos ante todo por los colonizadores: el término castellano borrachera, usado para calificar las conductas autóctonas de embriaguez, revela enseguida el grado de incomprensión y de desprecio del Conquistador hacia el "Otro."
