Summary
During the Prohibition era, Americans could not legally sell or manufacture alcoholic drinks but many people simply ignored the laws and consumed all the liquor they wanted. This book discusses how Prohibition came into being, how it worked and did not work, why it was eventually repealed, and what legacies Prohibition left for modern America
