Title: Primer on Alcoholism: How People Drink, How ...
Publisher: Rinehart & Co.
Publication Date: 1950
Book Condition: Very Good
Edition: First Edition.
New York, 1950. 8vo, red cloth, 216 pp. The scarce first edition of Mann's important work on alcoholism. n 1945 Mann became inspired with the desire to eliminate the stigma and ignorance regarding alcoholism, and to encourage the "disease model" which viewed it as a medical/psychological problem, not a moral failing. She helped start the Yale School of Alcohol Studies (now at Rutgers), and organized the National Committee for Education on Alcoholism (NCEA), now the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence or NCADD. First editions of Primer on Alcoholism are extremely rare. This copy is in very good condition. Contemporary pencil notes from an A.A. member on front free endpaper and some faint pencil marks in text, which we have chosen to leave since they represent an early engagement with Mann's work. Otherwise excellent with light normal wear. Please contact us for additional pictures or information. Bookseller Inventory # SP438
