An excellent explanation of the Prohibition Era. Great for research or just easy reading.

I hadn’t really intended to read this book. It’s just not a topic that would usually interest me. But I have enjoyed the other titles on the YA Nonfiction Award list so much that I thought I would give it a try. I am very glad I did. It was fascinating. Blumenthal does a wonderful job of clearly presenting the context of the history. I had never really thought about the circumstances and social climate that allowed Prohibition to be enacted. The process of repealing it was also more complicated than I realized. Well balanced and well written, this is definitely a book worth reading and recommending.
