The War on Alcohol: Prohibition and the Rise of the American State

The author is better at showing how the subtitle was advanced than making some more fundamental argument (to the extent that was her goal) by the main title while providing a general overview of Prohibition but overall it's a worthwhile read. Now and then (such as a quick summary of the groups pushing for prohibition that doesn't show more nuisance regarding temperance v. total prohibition) editors should have fixed things up a bit.
