Prohibition Is Here to Stay focuses on the Reverend Edward S. Shumaker, a Methodist minister who for nearly twenty-five years led Indiana's influential chapter of the Anti Saloon League. Shumaker was one of the most powerful men in Indiana in the fight against demon rum, and his influence extended well beyond the boundaries of the state during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Jason Lantzer uses Shumaker's life and work to shed new light on the rise and fall of Prohibition and to better understand and appreciate the interplay of religion and politics in American culture.



Drawing on Shumaker's personal papers as well as archival work, Lantzer argues that understanding the role of religious faith and in particular evangelical Protestantism is essential to understanding Prohibition. Shumaker's religious faith inspired his crusade against alcohol and his efforts to make the Indiana Anti Saloon League one of the strongest political pressure groups in the country. Lantzer argues that Edward Shumaker's life and the cause to which he devoted most of it were not aberrations but exemplars of central currents in American culture of the time. Lantzer also connects Shumaker and the prohibition movement in Indiana to larger issues of America's transition from a predominantly rural society to an urban culture, with the attendant fears of change, loss of values, the impact of industrialization, and foreign immigration.

About the Author:

Jason S. Lantzer is an adjunct history faculty member of Indiana University-Purdue University, Indianapolis, and Butler University.

Review:

“Prohibition is often dismissed as an unfortunate aberration in the American reform tradition, led by fanatics, and doomed to failure. Jason S. Lantzer seeks to correct this impression in a well-written and thoroughly documented study on the life and career of Edward S. Shumaker, state superintendent of the Indiana Anti-Saloon League from 1907 until his untimely death in 1929.” (Indiana Magazine of History)

“Prohibition is Here to Stay” is a biography of a pivotal figure in the Midwest’s early twentieth century dry crusade. The Reverend S. Shumaker was a Methodist minister who spent his life in Indiana, a man who believed alcohol was a sin from a very young age . . . students of the prohibition movement will find it informative.” (American Catholic Studies)

"Presenting evidence that the prohibition movement in Indiana was not happenstance or abnormal, but rather an effect of the mainstream cultural currents of the era, "Prohibition Is Here to Stay" uses Indiana as a lens to further examine larger issues of America's transformation from a rural to an urban majority, as well as the consequent shift in cultural values and the repercussions of industrialization and foreign immigration. A thoughtful, well-researched and persuasively presented study, highly recommended especially for college library collections." (Midwest Book Review)

Using the life of Reverend Edward S. Shumaker as a lens through which to view how social issues can be shaped by religious faith, historian Jason S. Lantzer explores the relationship between religion and politics in American culture, particularly during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This enjoyable, well-researched biography contains extensive and informative notes, as well as a valuable bibliography that includes archives, primary and secondary sources, court cases, dissertations and theses, interviews and oral histories, manuscript collections, newspapers, pamphlets, and websites. Recommended for high school, college, and public libraries. (Catholic Library World)
