    Abstract

    This is an important contribution to the field of forensic alcohol testing and a testament to its historical development with a focus on one of its stalwarts, Dr. Robert F. Borkenstein. The nine chapters may be classified into three sections. First, the life and work of Dr. Borkenstein (one chapter), second, a review of principles and the development of alcohol testing and programs (six chapters), and third, clinical aspects (two chapters). The appreciation of history is fundamental to the advancement of science and this publication uniquely combines science with history and allows the reader to review the current status of alcohol testing while tracing the path of such knowledge.
