Conway Hunter, Jr., M.D.
Alcoholism Specialist "a book that will hold your attention from beginning to end. It will be controversial -- raising questions in the minds of historians and medical detectives ... It offers an explanation of previously unexplained acts of cruelty that seemed beyond comprehension. Agree with James Graham or not, his work will definitely cause readers to reevaluate opinions already held."
Harold E. Hughes
Former U.S. Senator
Founder, Society of Americans for Recovery (SOAR) "opens the door to an extremely important, but never before asked question: How much has alcohol-affected and drunken behavior influenced human history? James Graham's unprecedented examination of the disastrous consequences of alcohol-influenced behavior by historical figures is both fascinating and chilling. It should encourage others to participate in an entirely new discipline."
Scott C. Guth, M.D.
Psychiatrist "A bold and unusual approach to a sadly familiar problem. James Graham enters the subject of alcoholism through a very different door and his results are fresh, stimulating, controversial, and appropriately frightening. A unique contribution to the writing on alcoholism."
Author, The Courage to Change
