dc.description.abstractThe strong association between alcohol consumption and violence is undeniable but complex and a large scientific literature has attempted to clarify the relationship between them. This comprehensive text goes farther than any I have seen in illuminating the nature of the link and exploring implications for the treatment and prevention of alcohol-related violence.  It is essential reading both for those interested in reducing a major component of alcohol-related harm and those interested in reducing interpersonal violence. Nick Heather, Professor Emeritus, Northumbria University In addition to being an excellent research in her own right, Mary McMurran is a skilled editor who has worked tirelessly to promote evidence-based practice in corrections and forensic mental health. She knows how to identify hot topics, recruit top-notch authors, and ensure chapter contributions are both scientifically sound and practically useful. This volume is a perfect example. Whether you work on the front lines, as an administrator, or as a researcher or policy analyst, brace yourself: Reading this book will make you rethink how you you deliver services to violent offenders with alcohol use problems.
