This volume - a probing ethnographic study of the process of recovery from alcoholism - is the first sustained, in-depth analysis of the lived experiences of the recovering alcoholic. Drawing on many case studies and extensive personal experience, Denzin investigates and analyzes the phenomenology of drinking and alcoholism. He considers: the factors which make alcoholics seek treatment; the social stigmas which face the recovering alcoholic; and other difficulties which hinder the recovery process. He also outlines the ways in which groups like Alcoholics Anonymous are effective.
