About the Author

Thomas M. Wilson is Professor of Anthropology, Binghamton University.


'An ethnographic pub crawl around the world. By examining drinking habits from rural Japan to gangland Los Angeles, these essays peer deep into the collective souls of societies, revealing their hopes and anxieties. Thomas Wilson has made an important contribution to the anthropology of alcohol.' Jeffrey M. Pilcher, author of Que vivan los tamales! Food and the Making of Mexican Identity 'It offers a fascinating insight into how and why people drink in different cultures.' Hudson Cattell, Wine East 'The editor of this voulme has taken Mary Douglas's (1987) concept of 'constructive drinking' and run with it, producing an imaginative and innovative volume that gives new perspectives on ethnicity and identity as well as on alcohol use and its outcomes...As such, it [Drinking Cultures] consitutes a substantial contribution to our knowledge about drinking patterns in cross-cultural and cross-national perspective. At the same time, the varied but recurrent emphasis on identity, ethnicity and social interaction makes these papers relevant to many other social scientists, even if they have not before thought of alcohol as a window on the world.' Dwight B. Heath, Brown University, The Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute (Vol 12, No 2, June 2006)
