The SAGE Encyclopedia of Alcohol: Social, Cultural, and Historical Perspectives examines the history of alcohol worldwide and goes beyond the historical lens to examine alcohol as a cultural and social phenomenon, used both for good and for ill. While these roots are traced back through nearly all human societies for the past thousands of years, many results are still present in today’s society. Some examples include Germany’s repute of being known as a “beer culture” and France’s as a “wine culture.” With alcohol having many purposes and significance, it has become a strong part of cultures around the world as usage ranges from religious purposes to a simple toast to a seal business deal.nn nnKey Features:nn 550 entries are organized A-to-Z, available in a choice of electronic or print formats.n Entries, authored and signed by academics, conclude with cross references and further readings.n A detailed index, the Reader’s Guide, and cross references combine for search-and-browse in the electronic version.n Back matter includes a timeline, appendices (alcohol statistics, toasts in languages from around the world, etc.), and a helpful Resource Guide directing students to classic books, journals, and web sites for more in-depth study.nnThis reference work will serve as a general, non-technical resource for students and researchers who are interested in expanding their knowledge on social, cultural, and historical perspectives on topics relating to alcohol.
