About this item

Daniel Okrent demonstrates, in this stirring and eye-opening history, that Prohibition in America was about more than gangsters and gin mills. Okrent probes deeply to explore the sleazy politicians, the strange alliances that were formed over the mutually agreed-on evils of alcohol. the creative coping methods of ordinary citizens who simply wanted a glass of wine with dinner. The book illuminates not only the 14 years of Prohibition's existence (1919-33) but its lasting legacy, including the hypocrisy and class divisions that plague the American political scene today. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of 2010.
