Reviews

This compiled bibliography offers an invaluable source of references on a wide range of studies published in recent years on fetal alcohol exposure and effects. It will address the needs of basic scientists, clinicians, and social workers with interest in this field. -Zehava Gottesfeld, Ph.D. Associate Professor, Medical School, The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston


Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is a hot topic; but this reviewer is biased against unannotated, apparently uncritical bibliographies. Most people would be better off, and more up to date, with a MEDLINE search. A sample (10% of the citations) showed that about 80% of the citations were from journals indexed there or in Index Medicus. Many of the others were books or dissertations, indexed elsewhere (though not in MEDLINE or Index Medicus). Almost all of the citations are to fairly technical articles. Many are animal studies and some seem, frankly, very marginal. Citations are alphabetical by author. The subject index is rudimentary. It is hard to imagine a library needing this title. Libraries having more than a few of the journal titles would almost certainly have MEDLINE or Index Medicus. The field is growing and access to the most current literature is important. -Choice Updates Abel's first bibliography covering 1973-1984 (Greenwood Press, 1985). Some 1,800 entries are arranged alphabetically by author, and are briefly annotated. Most are articles from medical journals in Abel's personal collection. . . The index is thorough, compiled not just from titles, but also from key words in the annotations. -Reference & Research Book News ?Updates Abel's first bibliography covering 1973-1984 (Greenwood Press, 1985).
