Book DescriptionA history of drink and drinking in Canada, from the European conquest to the present. Enlivened by photographs, ads, and cartoons, and, by turns, charming and disturbing, Booze tells a story with many chapters: * liquor traffic * alcohol in Native Indian communities * prohibition * bootlegging * the advent of the wine bar * the era of the cocktail lounge "To write about booze is to enter into a minefield of controversy," writes Heron. The book's clear and lively style makes this controversial history come alive.
