This new edition of a pioneering work, first published in 1971, studies the impact of industrialization on drinking habits and attitudes toward drink in England. The book had a major impact on writing about nineteenth-century social history, and continues today to be a much-used resource. This revised edition includes new material and assesses research done since 1971. It also features a fresh introduction which examines the book's place in the understanding of Victorian social history.
