Hardcover. Condition: Good. No Jacket. This book is very tidy other than the fact that the title page has been removed. Over the last ten years therapeutic aspects and motivational strategies have been considerably improved. Hence, groups and subgroups have been defined and can be treated with specific medication and tailor-made psychotherapies, leading in the long term to considerably better and more effective results than the once broadly applied, rigorous abstinence -based therapies. However, alcohol and nicotine addiction still represent major medical and social problems. In this book, new therapeutic approaches are comprehensively described, outlining the different interactions between personality, environment and the effects of the substance. In addition to prevention-based therapies and diagnosis, essential psychological and sociological strategies, as well as medication-based therapies, are also presented in detail. All of these therapies have realistic aims and are of global validity. In addition, the book provides a broad overview of the American and European epidemiology of alcohol and nicotine addictions. The book is written for all those who care for and offer professional therapy for alcohol and nicotine-addicted patients.

Pages are heaviy age-toned. 376pp. Dust jacket has minor edge-wear and has been price clipped. Good copy with darkened pages and nice DW. Little has been written to describe comprehensively the pandemic of influenza that slaughtered more than 21 million people between October 1918 and January 1919. Comparable in its ferocity only with the Black Deth of the Middle Ages, the disease struck world-wide within a three month period, with such devastation that fit men could drop dead in the street without warning and the medical world came seriously to fear the end of civilisation. Here Richard Collier sets out to present the pandemic in terms of human experience, based on the memories of more than 1700 world survivors. For the first time we have not a medical textbook or the creation of a novelist, but the diverse reactions of ordinary citizens as the disease grew in intensity.
