The New Yorker Features Anthropology of Drinking Habits

The February 15 edition of The New Yorker includes the Annals of Anthropology article “Drinking Games” (p 70-76), by Malcolm Gladwell, highlighting the alcoholism studies work of AAA member Dwight B. Heath. The article includes comments from anthropologists Craig MacAndrew and Robert B. Edgerton as well.

Alice Kehoe informs us that Dwight Heath has also contributed an account of alcoholism studies in anthropology, and his role, in the Association of Senior Anthropologists’ forthcoming volume provisionally titled “Struggle and Victories:  ‘Great Generation’ Anthropologists Reflect on their Lives and Perspectives, 1945-1980,” edited by Kehoe and Paul Doughty (pdf).
