Summary

"This book gives a unique perspective on approaches to problem drinking among Aboriginal people, and the role that cultural difference has played. It finds that in the 1980s there was an innovative and lively international debate about addictions, yet these understandings - and potential solutions - did not find their way into Aboriginal programs. Provocatively, the book finds that this hesitation meant various governments did not intervene to reform existing services or publicise new approaches that could stem the impact of alcohol on indigenous Australians. It asks what impact this had on broader health policy and the ways we think about cultural difference, health and drinking." "By moving between the world of fieldwork with Aboriginal people throughout Australia and the world of public health research, Maggie Brady has produced a landmark study."--BOOK JACKET.
