Description/Abstract

A review is presented of British research related to alcohol use and misuse by adolescents in the period 1970 to 1991. The stability of alcohol use among this age group is emphasised by a succession of studies which indicate the normality of alcohol consumption among its members, most of whom drink in moderation. It is noted that a succession of 'moral panics' amplified in the popular media have led to public concern about an 'epidemic' of alcohol misuse by young people, but that research evidence does not sustain this popular supposition. Nevertheless, the available evidence does support the conclusion that alcohol misuse is a major problem for a small proportion of young people.
