viii + 160pp. Profuse illustrations.

The subject of the following pages is the future of drinking, not the future of prohibition. The reader who wishes to find assurance that the Eighteenth Amendment will be immediately repealed and the reader who looks for a brilliant solution to the problem of law enforcement will be equally disappointed. What is said of the pleasures of drinking will irritate the professional drys, and the sour notes in the hymn to drunkenness will annoy the professional drunkards. The book is therefore addressed to the unterrified ones who do not object to un-seriousness in the treatment of the noble experiment and to those thrice pockmarked and scarified blades invoked by Rabelais, who are interested in drinking--and know when and how to drink.    [Book ID # 1608]
