Alcohol problems among Native Americans are severe and widespread. Statistics report that the rate of alcohol-related deaths is about eight times greater for Native Americans than for the U.S. population as a whole. This bibliography identifies the problems of alcoholism and alcohol abuse among Native American youth as a severe mental and physical health issue that deserves closer study, and it brings together in one volume most of what is known about the subject to date. The increasing amount of research that has appeared in recent years has created the need for a comprehensive reference focusing not only on anthropological and sociological concerns, but on questions more specifically relevant to Native Americans, such as child abuse and neglect, foster homes, school problems, dropouts, peer relation effects, family modeling response, fetal alcohol syndrome, developmental factors, and, most importantly, social deprivation. The authors maintain that the emerging literature on Native American youth's alcoholism is multidisciplinary in nature, suggesting that the subject in general has taken on greater significance in the social framework of this country. Native American Youth and Alcohol makes a valuable contribution by emphasizing the current publications on Indian youth and alcohol in an accessible format that offers a broad spectrum of opinion and analysis. This timely work will be read by professionals in the human services field and by a variety of researchers, practitioners, and those who are currently engaged in health promotion and disease prevention activities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This excellent bibliography provides a much needed reference source for scholars. The compilers, both faculty members in the Graduate School of Social Work, University of Texas at Arlington, have done a very creditable job. The references are divided into 11 subjects: accidental death, biomedical factors, crime, etiology, gender, policy and prevention, reservations, sociological factors, suicide, treatment, and urban versus rural incidence. The references are thoroughly annotated and the Introduction and Review of the Literature' provides a detailed overview. Two indexes, subject and author, complete the book. . . outstanding work. Highly recommended for research collections."-Choice
"Since alcohol abuse among native Americans is every bit as much a scourge on their populations as President Bush has declared other forms of drug abuse to be on the nation's cities, this bibliography is important because it focuses additional attention on the problem. It will be invaluable to the field's researchers."-Wilson Library Bulletin
