By M. J. Akhtar (auth.), J. S. Madden, Robin Walker, W. H. Kenyon (eds.)

It is for me, as President of the Merseyside Lancashire & Cheshire Council on Alcoholism, a sign privilege to put in writing a quick foreword to those complaints of the 3rd foreign convention on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. through the week specialists, from across the world, in all these disciplines that have a contribution to make to the answer of the issues of alcoholism and drug dependence, surveyed contemporary advances in our wisdom of the aetiology, epidemiology, early popularity, administration, and the social and business implications of those dual scourges of the modern scene. The discussions have been so much important and enlightening even if a large spectrum of conflicting perspectives and reports have been published. The justification for including yet one more quantity to the transforming into literature during this box is two-fold; first, that these playing the convention can research at relaxation and intensive the transactions of the convention; and secondly, that those that have been not able to wait could gain advantage from the latest perspectives of overseas specialists within the varied elements of 1 of the key present difficulties in international healthiness.
