Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Lanier's (emerita English and philosophy, Georgia Southern U.) basis for connecting the two drugs is a quote from a 1982 popular home magazine, and the observation that some people took whichever was available at the time. The mildly hallucinogenic alcoholic drink never became a cover for military excursions in foreign countries and domestic ghettos. She discusses the drink's rise in popularity in the late 19th century, particularly in France and New Orleans by writers and artists, the addiction problems it caused, and the temperance movement. The 1995 edition was cloth bound.
