Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 909–910. Reviews the book, Alcohol and Opiates: Neurochemical and Behavioral Mechanisms edited by Kenneth Blum (1977). This book provides an excellent summary of recent progress toward an understanding of the mechanisms of action of both alcohol and the opiates, from the cellular to the behavioral level. Topics that have received increased attention lately, such as the genetic aspects of alcoholism and the adverse effects of maternal drinking on the fetus, are treated in separate chapters.
