Reviews

"Useful, insightful, and finely balanced... Of the many books on the Prohibition, Rose's is among the best." --W. J. Rorabaugh Pacific Northwest Quarterly "Though neglected by historians, the prohibition-repeal movement loomed large in U.S. politics in the late twenties and early thirties. In this very readable and well-researched study, Kenneth Rose explores the roles of women's organizations in this struggle. In the process he restores some once-influential women to their rightful place; challenges some widely held assumptions; and reminds us that women's history, like all history, can surprise us by its rich diversity and unexpected twists." --Paul Boyer University of Wisconsin-Madison "Rose forcefully demonstrates that in the debate over the repeal of prohibition many of the women involved (notwithstanding marked differences in class, religion, or party affiliation) shared a common moral vision based on the protection of the American home. With commendable intellectual integrity, he refuses to rest with the simplified conclusions some scholars resort to in order to make an attractive and politically tidy case for 'their kind of woman.'" --Martha Banta University of California, Los Angeles "Rose writes with relish and humor and contributes an important set of insights to the American experience with Prohibition, an experiment that still haunts the country over sixty years after Repeal." --Robert E. Burke Professor Emeritus of History University of Wisconsin "Unique in [its] emphasis on the role of women's organizations in both prohibition and repeal, and how the arguments used by women's organizations to promote the Eighteenth Amendment in 1923 were used by opponents to repeal it in 1933... The author is dedicated to recovering the history of politically conservative women who have been traditionally ignored or dismissed in other historical studies." --Book News
