Drinking, Conduct Disorder, and Social Change

This chapter begins with a summary of the findings in the previous chapters. It then concludes with a reconsideration of some of the implications of the results for the cross-cultural study of alcohol use; for prevention; for the question of whether alcohol dependence is one condition or many; and for understanding the impact of social change on alcohol use and abuse. Among the most important implications is the policy dilemma raised by the fact that alcohol dependence is indeed heterogeneous and that certain individuals at especially high risk can be identified early in life.
