Prohibition: A Very Short Introduction

W. J. Rorabaugh

Very Short Introductions

  • A short and engaging synthesis of Prohibition that illuminates its deep impact on American history, culture, and law from the 1920s to the present
  • Traces the origins of Prohibition back to the evangelical-based voluntary abstinence temperance movement in the early 1800s
  • Makes clear that public support for Prohibition collapsed due to gangster violence and the need for local, state, and federal government alcohol revenue during the Great Depression
