Zuckerman, Karen, Ed.
This guide was designed to aid prevention specialists, educators, parents, and others in addressing tobacco problems among youth. Listed here are numerous publications--each one summarized--on tobacco use. The guide is divided into two sections: (1) Prevention Material for Tobacco; and (2) Studies, Articles, and Reports on Tobacco. Section one includes publications on secondhand smoke, spit tobacco, non-smokers' rights, tobacco as a drug, smoking and health, and other information. Each listing includes the following information: title, organization responsible for publication, publication date, format, topic, target audience, setting, readability, inventory number, and availability, including addresses and phone numbers. Many of the materials are for children. Section two, which consists of government publications and journal articles, features more extensive summaries than those that appear in the previous section. Some of the titles here address prevention, addiction, women, tobacco advertising, peer group influence, maternal smoking, Black Americans, prevention programs, health consequences, youth, passive smoking, predictors of use, gender differences, intervention, and government policy. Names, addresses, and phone numbers for groups, organizations, and programs on tobacco appear at the end of the guide. (RJM)
