This title explores the events that lead to the passage of the 18th Amendment, descriptions of life during prohibition, and the events that led to its repeal, debates during the prohibition era as to whether the law was necessary and effective or an overreaction that caused more harm than good; whether it violated personal liberty; and whether the prohibition law should be modified or repealed, and personal narratives from those who experienced prohibition firsthand, including a man's recollection of going to speakeasies as a teen; another's recounting of his career as a bootlegger; and a prohibition agent's tales of enforcing the law.
