Tip o' the mug to David Fahey from the History of Alcohol and Drugs website for letting me know that Amy Mittelman's new book will be available in December. (The Amazon page shows it available now.) The title is Brewing Battles: The Story of American Beer. (Catchy subtitle, eh??) I read her dissertation (an investigation of the alcohol industry and federal tax policies) when I was working on my book about beer. That was a fine piece of research, and I'm guessing this book is as well. Her publisher's page is here, and here's the Amazon page.
Thanks again to David.
