There is no moderate drinker who is not going on to the next stage of his journey, or who not turning back....He is coming back toward the norm of sobriety, or he is going on toward drunkenness. -from "The Moderate Drinker" Be not misled! Drink and Be Sober isn't a command, or a guidebook to moderation, but a fascinating document of the post-World War I temperance movement and an impassioned call for the abolishment of alcohol. Published in 1916, its outbursts encompass: - What Alcohol Does to the Man - Why Some Drinkers Are Drunkards - Crime, Drink-Storms, and Degeneration - Drink and National Crises With today's hindsight into the disaster of Prohibition, this is a startling and inadvertently entertaining screed against the nightmare of drink.
