Thirteen Years That Changed America From the bestselling author of The Last Emperor comes this rip-roaring history of the governments attempt to end Americas love affair with liquorwhich failed miserably. On January 16, 1920, America went dry. For the next thirteen years, the Eighteenth Amendment prohibited the making, selling, or transportation of intoxicating liquors, heralding a new era of crime and corruption on all levels of society. Instead of eliminating alcohol, Prohibition spurred more drinking than ever before. Formerly law-abiding citizens brewed moonshine, became rum- runners, and frequented speakeasies. Druggists, who could dispense medicinal quantities of alcohol, found their customer base exploding overnight. So many people from all walks of life defied the ban that Will Rogers famously quipped, Prohibition is better than no liquor at all. Here is the full, rollicking story of those tumultuous days, from the flappers of the Jazz Age and the beautiful and the damned who drank their lives away in smoky speakeasies to bootlegging gangstersPretty Boy Floyd, Bonnie and Clyde, Al Caponeand the notorious St. Valentines Day Massacre. Edward Behr paints a portrait of an era that changed the country forever.
