Synopsis: Based on over 20 years' prodigious research, Graham takes the reader on a compelling tour of human history & links alcohol addiction with the destructive behavior of a range of public figures, including tyrants, murderers, politicians & writers. Drawing on the case of famous characters such as Alexander the Great, Joseph Stalin, Joe McCarthy & Ernest Hemingway, this book presents a convincing assessment of how this disorder can adversely affect the behavior of powerful individuals with devastating consequences.

From the Back Cover: "A comprehensive, enlightening and entertaining book [that] will appeal to everyone -- those seeking knowledge of the alcoholic and his or her behavior; the professional in the field of addiction; the alcoholic, active and recovered... "

Conway Hunter, Jr., M.D.

Alcoholism Specialist "a book that will hold your attention from beginning to end. It will be controversial -- raising questions in the minds of historians and medical detectives ... It offers an explanation of previously unexplained acts of cruelty that seemed beyond comprehension. Agree with James Graham or not, his work will definitely cause readers to reevaluate opinions already held."

Harold E. Hughes

Former U.S. Senator

Founder, Society of Americans for Recovery (SOAR) "opens the door to an extremely important, but never before asked question: How much has alcohol-affected and drunken behavior influenced human history? James Graham's unprecedented examination of the disastrous consequences of alcohol-influenced behavior by historical figures is both fascinating and chilling. It should encourage others to participate in an entirely new discipline."

Scott C. Guth, M.D.

Psychiatrist "A bold and unusual approach to a sadly familiar problem. James Graham enters the subject of alcoholism through a very different door and his results are fresh, stimulating, controversial, and appropriately frightening. A unique contribution to the writing on alcoholism."

Dennis Wholey

Author, The Courage to Change

Host, America: Personal Conversations with Dennis Wholey "An absorbing examination of destructive behavior by famous alco- holics and children of alcoholics. Many names will surprise the reader!"

Lucy Barry Robe

Author, Co-Starring Famous Women and Alcohol

Editor, ASAM News

a publication of the American Society of Addiction Medicine.
