Description
 
Edward Behr (au). On Jan. 16, 1920, at the stroke of midnight, America went dry. For the next 13 years, no U.S. citizen had the right to buy or sell alcoholic drink. However, instead of eliminating the source of the ‘Devil’s Brew’, this period of supposed abstinence was to incite Americans -- even law-abiding citizens -- to bend or break the law by every possible means. Far from eliminating alcohol, the laws of Prohibition encouraged more drinking (albeit illegally) than ever before. Behr traces the rise of the Temperance movement from its colonial roots to the Jazz Age. The shocking & compelling stories found here challenge conventional perceptions of the Prohibition era & of how it shaped modern-day America.
