Well researched topic,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rum: A Social and Sociable History of the Real Spirit of 1776 (Paperback)
I purchased this to do some research on the topic of alcohol and rum-running. This was a good resource of information. The book covers many years and eras from the American Revolution to the West Indian trade.
The only downside is that it may have been a little dry at times, but the book is more a victim of its genre than the author.
