About the book and author:

Dr. Arthur H. Cain has been working intensively in the field of alcohol studies since 1947. He earned his B.S., M.A., and Ph. D. degrees at Columbia University as a result of his interest in alcoholism. As a counselor to alcoholics he has specialized in helping those alcoholics for whom Alcoholics Anonymous, orthodox psychotherapy, and pastoral counseling have failed. He has achieved an astonishing rate of success in this
"Court of Last Appeal" role, and he wrote his doctoral dissertation about seven of these "hopeless" alcoholics - all of whom are now leading healthy, happy, creative lives.

He is the author of the highly controversial article, "Alcoholics Anonymous: Cult or Cure?" (Harper's Magazine, February, 1963); and the widely acclaimed book, Young People and Drinking, also published by The John Day Company. Doctor Cain has felt from the beginning of his inquiry into alcoholism that "whole new concepts in general psychology must be forthcoming if we are to gain any real insight into the problem."

Now, after seventeen years of study, research, and working intimately with alcoholics of every description, those new concepts are at hand, in The Cured Alcoholic.”
