Indigenous Australia and Alcohol Policy – Meeting Difference with Indifference gives a unique perspective on approaches to problem drinking among Aboriginal people, and the role that cultural difference has played.
It finds that in the 1980s there was an innovative and lively international debate about addictions, yet these understandings—and potential solutions—did not find their way into Aboriginal programs.
