Drinking alcohol can be immensely pleasurable and life enhancing. On the other hand, it can be associated with danger and risk. This book explores some of the implications of this dichotomy, which creates many policy and practice dilemmas, by a detailed exploration of the place of drinking in women's lives. Interviews and case studies show women's drinking practices to be constructive and autonomous responses to the social and material contexts of their lives.
