    Interpreting the Prohibition Era at Museums and Historic Sites chronicles the rise and fall of one of the greatest attempted reforms in American History.

This captivating guide will help interpreters explain the history of prohibition, its repeal, and its legacies. Case studies cover: · Breweries · Reformers · Women · Saloons, both before and after Prohibition · Gamblers and gumshoes This guide will help museum and history professionals make sense of a complex story, relate the history and legacy of political pressure groups, and help learners think about the era in new ways.
