Summary, etc.:
Popular culture has given us a very strong, and very wrong, picture of what the period was like. Prohibition's Greatest Myths: The Distilled Truth about America's Anti--Alcohol Crusade aims to correct common misperceptions with ten essays by scholars who have spent their careers studying different aspects of the era. These essays debunk many of the myths surrounding "the Noble Experiment," not only providing a more in--depth analysis of prohibition but also allowing readers to engage more meaningfully in contemporary debates about alcohol and drug policy.
Subject: History, America > 1900-1999.
