The topic of alcohol use in society is multifaceted and dynamic. Consciousness-altering substance use can be found in the archaeological record dating back to the very beginning of human societies and, indeed, the pursuit of intoxication predates humanity. Many species today other than humans indulge in a variety of behaviors intended to alter states of mind. The citations selected for this article will thus span human history and address the cultural, symbolic, and individual implications of substance use, both good and bad, in society.
