    This is a book review of the title 'Alcohol, Drinking, Drunkenness: (Dis)Orderly Spaces' by M. Jayne, G. Valentine and S.L. Holloway, ISBN: 978-0-7546-7160-2 published by Ashgate: Surrey, 2011. 158 pp.

    (Dis)Orderly Spaces sets out to be the first book dedicated to looking at alcohol issues through a geographical lens. This aim is particularly refreshing for this reader, who for the past quarter century has felt like the only geographer working in the substance use field in Scotland - and yet from the outset was struck that Amsterdam University’s drug research team was based in their department of Sociale Geografie (perhaps, unlike the English-speaking world, the Dutch have a more tolerant attitude towards geographers?).
