Books That Can Help - 'Alcoholism, Treatable Illness'

Alcoholism, Treatable Illness, the first volume of a two-volume study of alcoholism and alcoholism-treatment programs, has just been published by Mitchell Press, Ltd., Vancouver, B.C. The author is J. George Strachan, a recovered alcoholic of twenty-four years' standing, and a professional in the alcoholism field of recognized stature in Canada and the U.S.

Comparing Strachan's book with others lately issued on the subject, one is struck by the remarkable--and in my view really helpful--emphasis on recovery as against sociological, medical, or psychiatric description of the alcoholic and the public-health problem, alcoholism.
