Overview

Alcohol and Temperance in Modern History: An International Encyclopedia spans the history of alcohol production and consumption from the development of distilled spirits and modern manufacturing and distribution methods to the present. Authoritative and unbiased, it brings together the work of hundreds of experts from a variety of disciplines with an emphasis on the extraordinary wealth of scholarship developed in the past several decades.

Its nearly 500 alphabetically organized entries range beyond the principal alcoholic beverages and major producers and retailers to explore attitudes toward alcohol in various countries and religions, traditional drinking occasions and rituals, and images of drinking and temperance in art, painting, literature, and drama. Other entries describe international treaties and organizations related to alcohol production and distribution, global consumption patterns, and research and treatment institutions, as well as temperance, prohibition, and antiprohibitionist efforts worldwide.

Library Journal
With all the recent concern about the public and social health costs of alcohol, this intelligent encyclopedia meets a real need for a ready reference addressing terms, concepts, and issues related to alcohol and temperance in history. The editors are all published authorities on temperance history, and their encyclopedia generously describes alcohol-related subjects ranging from Bible wine to toasting practices. Clearly written by 170 experts, the almost 500 entries vary from squibs identifying individuals and terms to lengthy biographies and essays on the production, consumption, regulation, and politics of alcoholic beverages of all kinds. Articles on drinking patterns in industrialized countries and in different cultures across the world allow comparison for the first time, and the contributors' careful attention to legislation and regulation in many different places facilitates judgments about the effects of temperance and restriction. All the entries include both references and cross references; appendixes printing critical documents, Internet resources, and song themes add value. Uncork the champagne for this fine work, which belongs in every university and major public library collection.-Randall M. Miller, Saint Joseph's Univ., Philadelphia Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
