The Prohibition Hangover

About The Prohibition Hangover

“The Prohibition Hangover is about the changing role of alcohol in American society since Repeal.  The book’s strength is its primary research, as I interviewed hundreds of people on all sides of the alcohol debate -– clergy, bar owners, public health advocates, alcohol beverage industry representatives, even Juanita Swedenburg, who successfully led her interstate wine shipment lawsuit to the U.S. Supreme Court.  I live just outside Washington, DC.  The nation’s capital is an excellent place to research alcohol, as most of the alcohol trade groups are here.”
