This review of the literature focuses on alcoholism among American Indian peoples. It is a critical review, aimed at elucidating methodological problems, establishing areas of relatively firm knowledge, and identifying gaps in our knowledge. The first two sections cover nonclinical areas: that is, 1) historical and anthropological studies of American Indian (AI) alcohol use, and 2) the nature and extent of alcoholism among various AI peoples.. The remaining sections emphasize clinically related areas: that is, 1) clinical epidemiology, 2) intervention methods, and 3) outcomes.
