Title: Last Call. The Rise And Fall Of Prohibition
Author: Daniel Okrent
A brilliant, authoritative, and fascinating history of America’s most puzzling era, the years 1920 to 1933, when the U.S. Constitution was amended to restrict one of America’s favorite pastimes: drinking alcoholic beverages. From its start, America has been awash in drink. Last Call stands as the most complete history of Prohibition ever written and confirms Daniel Okrent’s rank as a major American writer.
