Book Description: Skyhorse Publishing, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 228 x 155 mm. Brand New Book. From the bestselling author of The Last Emperor comes this rip-roaring history of the government s attempt to end America s love affair with liquor--which failed miserably. On January 16, 1920, America went dry. For the next thirteen years, the Eighteenth Amendment prohibited the making, selling, or transportation of intoxicating liquors, heralding a new era of crime and corruption on all levels of society. Instead of eliminating alcohol, Prohibition spurred more drinking than ever before. Formerly law-abiding citizens brewed moonshine, became rum- runners, and frequented speakeasies. Druggists, who could dispense medicinal quantities of alcohol, found their customer base exploding overnight. So many people from all walks of life defied the ban that Will Rogers famously quipped, Prohibition is better than no liquor at all. Here is the full, rollicking story of those tumultuous days, from the flappers of the Jazz Age and the beautiful and the damned who drank their lives away in smoky speakeasies to bootlegging gangsters--Pretty Boy Floyd, Bonnie and Clyde, Al Capone--and the notorious St. Valentine s Day Massacre. Edward Behr paints a portrait of an era that changed the country forever. Bookseller Inventory # AAW9781611450095
