"Prohibition in Atlanta: Temperance, Tiger Kings and White Lightning" 176 pp with 85+ images, Arcadia Publishing/The History Press
USPS media mail shipping with tracking is included for this listing (see option to upgrade to Priority Mail in "more info")

Sold by and shipped from co-author Mary O. Boyle. By ordering from this listing, you will receive a copy of the book that is autographed by both authors--Ron Smith and Mary Boyle--and will include a dedication if you request in the notes to seller (name/s and any other special wording). Purchase includes a printed coaster of the book cover that makes a great bookmark.

This new book from Arcadia / The History Press follows the roots and cycles of alcohol prohibition in Atlanta, beginning with General Oglethorpe's ban of rum when Georgia was first settled as a colony. Local prohibition activities and effects are discussed in the context of the national prohibition movement, and we include the most recent changes in law. As authors, our goal has been to make a difficult and messy subject as approachable as possible.

Chapter titles
1. From Frontier Frenzy to Semi-Domesticated Drinking
2. Temperance in Georgia, 1735-1884
3. The Battle for Fulton County
4. From Wet Atlanta to Dry Georgia
5. The Effects of State Prohibition
6. Georgia Tightens the Lid on Alcohol
7. Income Tax, the Kaiser and National Prohibition
8. Tiger Kings, White Lightning and the Dixie Highway
9. Society Demands Repeal
10. Prohibition's Legacy

A comprehensive bibliography and index are included in the book. Makes a great gift for those who love spirits and history.

Early review of our book:
"Ron and Mary deliver an exceptionally well researched narrative of the time, capturing the sociocultural dynamics, resilience of enterprise, legal struggles, and consequences of Prohibition in this 'sessionable' must read!"
Chris Tsavatewa - Breweriana Collector and
Co-Founder and Craft Beer Evangelist, The Peach State Ale Trail

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

The prohibition chapter in "Atlanta Beer: A Heady History of Brewing in the Hub of the South" was very well received. Because of the complex factors at play in Georgia's prohibition history, we decided to tackle a book that brings together the historical temperance and anti-prohibition people and turning points in a readable way.

Materials Used

Paperback (176 pages, 85+ images)
