Drinking Games, from Bolivia to Connecticut (article)

Michael Gladwell, "Drinking Games," New Yorker, Feb. 15, 2010.  Thank you to Kevin Grace for the tip.  The article recounts a research finding from the 1950s when Dwight Heath was a young anthropology graduate student at Yale. Both the Camba in Bolivia and Italian-Americans in New Haven, Connecticut, drank a good deal but did not display anti-social behavior.  For an abstract of the article, see here.
