A social and cultural history of smoking in Montreal exploring, for the first time, how smoking rituals were shaped by gender, class, and race.
"This text is representative of the best kind of social history: one which combines in-depth historical research with the insights of sociology and cultural studies." Ruth Waterhouse, Sociology of Health & Illness, Staffordshire University "Histories of tobacco consumption tend to have a strong cultural flavour. Jarrett Rudy's fluidly written, gracefully organized monograph on the history of smoking in Montreal represents no exception. [Rudy] deftly avoids the pitfall of repetition while managing to frame his entertaining anecdotes with serious analysis. The Freedom to Smoke offers a wealth of material for historians of liberalism." Barbara Hahn, Business History Review "A sophisticated book that illuminates how smoking, an unremarkable practice of everyday life, became the battleground for defending and contesting hierarchies of class, ethnicity/race, and gender." Keith Walden, history, Trent University
