By ealovitt HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on January 27, 2013
Format: Library Binding
This book is part of a Young Adult (YA) series on the U.S. Constitution published by Enslow Publishers, Inc. You might think that the battle to eliminate alcohol from the United States, and then the fight to repeal Prohibition is ancient history, but there are many lessons to be learned about how the Eighteenth Amendment was passed, and then how and why it was repealed.

One of the early mistakes that the Prohibitionists made was to form their own political party. They soon learned that it was much more effective to fund 'dry' candidates from the two major political parties, who would pursue a prohibitionist agenda for them (Tea Party, is there a lesson here for you?)

Some very colorful characters inhabit the pages of this book. Who has not heard of Carrie Nation and her axe? In the early 1900s, Kansas saloon owners were soon hanging up signs outside their business establishments that read: "All Nations Welcome except Carrie." Billy Sunday, the baseball player-turned-prohibitionist, Al Capone, and Eliot Ness are also featured in this book.

Author, Eileen Lucas does a good job of framing this episode in American history. Not only does she tell an interesting story about the people involved in the Prohibition Movement and its nemesis, we also learn a bit of constitutional law along the way. Those of us who still believe that marijuana can be prohibited by law should read this book, and learn its ultimate lesson: "The so-called noble experiment [Prohibition] demonstrated that in a democracy, no law can survive without the willing support of the vast majority of citizens."
