Alcohol-Related Issues in the Latino Population, 1980-1990: An Annotated Bibliography. Chicano Studies Library Publications Series, No. 17.
Gilbert, M. Jean, Comp.; And Others
This bibliography provides researchers, policymakers, and community service providers with 247 annotated citations about Latino alcohol use. Prior to 1980, little was known about alcohol use among Latinos living in the United States, and research was scant. Although research and information on the subject greatly expanded between 1980 and 1990, the gap between Latino alcohol research and public policy is still a barrier to the prevention of alcohol-related problems and the development of services for Latinos. Within a public health perspective, activities for the prevention of alcohol-related problems can include family and community education efforts as well as environmental restructuring and public policy formation. Citations in this document include journal articles, books, research reports, and government agency documents. Entries are listed under the broad categories of adults and youth, which are further subdivided under the topics of cultural issues, epidemiology, social and medical indicators, prevention, and treatment. Youth entries includes studies of secondary-school and college students; studies that relate alcohol use or abuse to poor grades, dropping out, and delinquency; and descriptions of alcohol education and prevention programs. Includes author and title indexes. (SV)
