Prohibition: E-book by This historical survey explores the events that lead to the passage of the 18th Amendment. Descriptions of life during prohibition, and the events that led to its repeal are shared. Readers will evaluate whether it violated personal liberty, and whether the prohibition law should be modified or repealed. This book also includes personal narratives from those who experienced prohibition firsthand, including a man's recollection of going to speakeasies as a teen; another's recounting of his career as a bootlegger; and a prohibition agent's tales of enforcing the law.
