KIRKUS REVIEW

A case study of the repeal of the 18th Amendment where ""every method of deception, coercion, and emotional distortion that professional propagandists could devise and unlimited money could pay for"" was used. The people and organizations behind the repeal campaign, their public, versus private, motives, their successful wet propaganda and how it worked. Names are named, and book and verse cited; details the steps of America's going dry, the prohibition law and its enforcement, the capitalization of the depression and the liquor problem today. Interesting propaganda analysis.
