This is a review of the book "Apprehending and Prosecuting the Drunk Driver" by Harvey M. Cohen and Joseph B. Green (New York: Matthew Bender & Co., Inc., 1992, 2nd release update available July 1994). The book is a comprehensive drunk driving manual for prosecutors and police. From the arresting officer's first observations of the drunk driver weaving in the road to the closing argument made by the prosecution in the drunk driving trial, this book covers the full range of issues that arise in drunk driving cases. The book is a long-needed synthesis of the scientific and legal resources needed to successfully prosecute the drunk driver. Its well-organized chapters make it easy for police and prosecutors to access material necessary to resolve legal or scientific issues in drunk driving cases. The book also has an extensive index and table of cases allowing ready access to the over 200 pages of information set forth in the publication. This review highly recommends this publication.
