Supplying and promoting "grog":the political economy of alcohol in Aboriginal Australia
MetadataShow full item record
The deleterious effects of alcohol misuse among Aboriginal Austalians hav been well documented and are widely achknowledged by Aboriginal people. However, most academic discussion has attempted to explain the demand for alcohol by Aboriginal people. In this review, we argue for an analysis of the political economy of Aboriginal alcohol use which also focuses on the supply and promotion of alcohol. Our own research and that of others demonstrates the utility of such an approach and the practical benefits it offers for harm minimisation strategies.
