Editorial Reviews

Review

"Potent Brews breaks new ground in analyzing the very different functions of alcohol in precolonial, colonial, and postcolonial contexts. Willis focuses particularly on alcohol's role in the making of authority, condending that "for people across East Africa, talking about 'proper' drinking and contrasting past drinking with present drinking, have been ways of arging about proper behavior within their own societies."
