This pathbreaking book paints a radical new picture of alcoholism, offering powerful evidence that most chronic alcoholics live out their lives in intact, relatively quiet family environments. The authors show, however, that living in an alcoholic family--in which alcoholism is the central theme around which family life is organized--has profound effects on family members both drinkers and nondrinkers.
