Reviews


"The best book on Prohibition, period. It is a revelation on the causes and nature of the Prohibition movement, and takes a properly international perspective, considering colonies and indigenous peoples as well. You will never look at Prohibition the same way again." -- Tyler Cowen, Professor of Economics, George Mason University
