Description
Discussion of temperance, moderate use and prohibition in regard to alcohol consumption and why moderation is a better approach to alcohol abuse than prohibition. The work examines the Bible, laws, including the Maine law, temperance arguments, etc., and is entirely anti-teomperance and pro-moderation in its viewpoints. There are two chapters on American wines.
