Prohibition Summary


Prohibition: The 13 Years That Changed America by Edward Behr

Exploring the USA's 13 years of Prohibition from political, historical and cultural perspectives, this book discusses not only gangsters, speakeasies and two-tone shoes, but also other, more unusual stereotypes. Accounts by the Chicago-based criminal-lawyer-turned-bootlegger, George Remus, and Mabel Willebrandt of the Justice Department, who was determined to break Remus's power, are a significant part of the book. The author, a veteran journalist and war correspondent, also conducted interviews with people who were an intrinsic part of the Prohibition era.
