The alcoholic offender by Daniel Glaser( Book )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The changes in behavior which follow the consumption of alcohol are a function of personality, social circumstances, and cultural traditions, rather than physiological effects alone. Standard personality tests fail to differentiate alcoholics from non-alcoholics. Tests show that a majority of persons arrested for felonies have been drinking, especially in cases of armed assault and weapon possession. Alcoholism is often associated with "native" offenses, such as petty forgeries to finance drinking habits. These alcoholic forgers are generally older and more educated than most criminals. Chronic police case inebriates, the largest arrest category in the United States, are involved in disorderly conduct, drunken driving and vagrancy offenses. These cases are a heavy burden to parole boards because of recurrent drunkenness arrests in middle and old age. The authors discuss the role of Alcoholics Anonymous in the treatment of alcoholics in the community and the prison."

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report describes six projects supported by the Office of Juvenile Delinquency and Youth Development and employing community action to combat juvenile delinquency: the Mobilization for Youth on New York City's lower East Side; the Syracuse Crusade for Opportunity in Syracuse, New York; the United Planning Organization, Washington, D.C.; Houston Action for Youth, Houston, Texas; Action for Appalachian Youth, Charleston, West Virginia; and HARYOU--ACT (Harlem Youth Opportunities Unlimited--Associated Community Teams) in Harlem, New York City. The reports delineate the project genesis, the target area, modes of organization, goals and assumptions, the staff and the organization utilized, the project itself, its results, and the community reaction. Drawing on the composite experience of the projects, the last chapter cites examples of community organization issues and offers suggestions to community organizers and social planners. A 16-item bibliography is included. (MK)
