Spirits are all the rage today. Two-thirds of Americans drink, whether they enjoy higher priced call brands or more moderately priced favorites. From fine dining and piano bars to baseball games and backyard barbeques, drinks are part of every social occasion. In The Prohibition Hangover, Garrett Peck explores the often-contradictory social history of alcohol in America, from the end of Prohibition in 1933 to the twenty-first century. For Peck, Repeal left American society wondering whether alcohol was a consumer product or a controlled substance, an accepted staple of social culture or a danger to society. Today the legal drinking age, binge drinking, the neoprohibitionist movement led by Mothers Against Drunk Driving, the 2005 Supreme Court decision in Granholm v. Heald that rejected discriminatory curbs on wine sales, the health benefits of red wine, advertising, and other issues remain highly contested. Based on primary research, including hundreds of interviews with those on all sidesùclergy, bar and restaurant owners, public health advocates, citizen crusaders, industry representatives, and moreùas well as secondary sources, The Prohibition Hangover provides a panoramic assessment of alcohol in American culture. Traveling through the California wine country, the beer barrel backroads of New England and Pennsylvania, and the blue hills of Kentucky's bourbon trail, Peck places the concerns surrounding alcohol use within the broader context of American history, religious traditions, and governance. Society is constantly evolving, and so are our drinking habits. Cutting through the froth and discarding the maraschino cherries, The Prohibition Hangover examines the modern American temperament toward drink amid the $189-billion-dollar-a-year industry that defines itself by the production, distribution, marketing, and consumption of alcoholic beverages.

Seit 1920 war ein nationales Alkoholverbot Bestandteil der amerikanischen Verfassung. Wie konnte es dazu kommen? Wie veränderte die Prohibition die amerikanische Gesellschaft? Welche Gründe führten zu ihrer Abschaffung im Jahre 1933? Thomas Welskopp legt eine Gesamtgeschichte und zugleich umfassende Gesellschaftsgeschichte der Vereinigten Staaten in der Zeit des nationalen Alkoholverbots vor. Ebenso anschaulich wie spannend erzählt der Autor, welch dramatischen Einfluss die Prohibitionsfrage und ihre Behandlung auf fast alle gesellschaftlichen Bereiche der USA ausübte. Wie entwickelten sich das Verfassungsrecht, die illegale - aber auch die legale - Alkoholwirtschaft, die Kultur des Trinkens und die Beziehungen zwischen den Geschlechtern, die Organisierte Kriminalität, die religiösen Milieus, die staatlichen Institutionen, die massenmediale Landschaft und schließlich die politische Kultur mitsamt dem amerikanischen Parteiensystem in den Jahren zwischen der Durchsetzung (1919) und der Abschaffung (1933) der National Prohibition?

In 1929, it was estimated that every week bootleggers brought twenty-two thousand gallons of whiskey, moonshine and other spirits into Washington, D.C.'s three thousand speakeasies. H.L. Mencken called it the "thirteen awful years, "? though it was sixteen for the District. Nevertheless, the bathtub gin, swilling capital dwellers made the most of Prohibition. Author Garrett Peck crafts a rollicking history brimming with stories of vice, topped off with vintage cocktail recipes and garnished with a walking tour of former speakeasies. Join Peck as he explores an underground city ruled not by organized crime but by amateur bootleggers, where publicly teetotaling congressmen could get a stiff drink behind House office doors and the African American community of U Street was humming with a new sound called jazz.

Imagine the jubilation of thirsty citizens in 1796 when the Washington Brewery--the city's first brewery--opened. Yet the English-style ales produced by the early breweries in the capital and in nearby Arlington and Alexandria sat heavy on the tongue in the oppressive Potomac summers. By the 1850s, an influx of German immigrants gave a frosty reprieve to their new home in the form of light but flavorful lagers. Brewer barons like Christian Heurich and Albert Carry dominated the taps of city saloons until production ground to a halt with the dry days of Prohibition. Only Heurich survived, and when the venerable institution closed in 1956, Washington, D.C., was without a brewery for fifty-five years. Author and beer scholar Garrett Peck taps this high-gravity history while introducing readers to the bold new brewers leading the capital's recent craft beer revival.

The great Potomac River begins in the Alleghenies and flows 383 miles through some of America's most historic lands before emptying into the Chesapeake Bay. The course of the river drove the development of the region and the path of a young republic Maryland's first Catholic settlers came to its banks in 1634 and George Washington helped settle the new capitol on its shores. During the Civil War the river divided North and South, and it witnessed John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry and the bloody Battle of Antietam. Author Garrett Peck leads readers on a journey down the Potomac, from its first fount at Fairfax Stone in West Virginia to its mouth at Point Lookout in Maryland. Combining history with recreation, Peck has written an indispensible guide to the nation's river.

Concord in Neuengland, Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts: ein Eldorado für Freidenker. Schriftsteller um Henry David Thoreau schreiben dort ihre wichtigsten Werke und revolutionieren neben der amerikanischen Literatur auch den amerikanischen Lebensstil: ungezwungen, kreativ und naturverbunden. Durch ein Erbe frühzeitig an Geld gelangt, lädt Ralph Waldo Emerson von ihm bewunderte Schriftsteller nach Concord. Was hier entsteht, wird nicht nur die Bewohner der Kleinstadt, sondern die Geschichte der amerikanischen Kultur in Aufruhr bringen. Die Transzendentalisten, wie die Gruppierung um Henry David Thoreau genannt wird, brechen mit allen Anstandsregeln: Nathaniel Hawthorne und Ralph Waldo Emerson verlieben sich gleichzeitig in die exzentrische Margaret Fuller, Louisa May Alcott schwärmt für ihren viel älteren Lehrer Thoreau, sie diskutieren, lesen sich gegenseitig Manuskripte vor, ernähren sich vegetarisch, ersinnen feministische Ideen und unternehmen Streifzüge durch die Wälder Neuenglands. American Bloomsbury ist das faszinierende Zeugnis dieser amourösen und intellektuellen Begegnungen. Es ist die Geschichte von Idealisten, die ihrer Zeit weit voraus waren.
