Summary
Thomas Pegram's narrative account of the fight to regulate alcohol traces the moral and political offensives of the temperance advocates, and shows how their tactics and organization reflected changes in the nation's politics and social structure. The failures of prohibition enforcement shaped the attitudes of politicians ever since, offering an example of the limits of government-enforced morals. Battling Demon Rum is an intriguing tale of social reform
