A Look at the Eighteenth and Twenty-first Amendments

The Prohibition and Sale of Intoxicating Liquors

Series: The Constitution of the United States

By Amy Graham

Accenting the efforts of the Prohibition groups such as the Women’s Christian Temperance Union and the Anti-Saloon League, author Amy Graham reviews the events and sentiments of the times that led to the short-lived existence of the Eighteenth Amendment. Also revisited are the times of bootleggers, speakeasies, and names like Al Capone, all of which contributed to the eventual creation of the Twenty-first Amendment.

The Horn Book Guide, Spring 2008

"This title will be useful for students who are doing research reports on the topic. Although the target audience seems to be middle school readers, this book may prove useful for high school libraries that need material that is high interest."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, September 2007

"While this series is specifically written for the younger reader, it easily can be used by anyone who is interested in the Constitutional amendments . . . The text itself is clear and very easy to read."
