Editorial Reviews

The Journal of Interdisciplinary History, Vol. 4, No. 4 (Spring, 1974), pp. 673-676 - Richard D. French
Drink and the Victorians is a masterful study of one of the most important moral crusades of the period and of the social conditions which spawned it. The book transcends previous categories of substantive concern in Victorian social and political history without sacrificing analytical focus or historiographical sophistication. Prodigiously researched and densely written, Drink and the Victorians is a professional historian's book.
The American Historical Review, Vol. 78, No. 4 (Oct., 1973), pp. 1064-1065 - Walter L. Arnstein
Drink and the Victorians is a remarkable book in that, except for the internal history of the brewing and spirit-manufacturing industry, the author appears to have investigated every conceivable facet of his complex subject on the basis of primary source evidence while at the same time demonstrating a mastery of the secondary literature on kindred social reform movements in England and elsewhere.
