Deliver Us from Evil: An Interpretation of American Prohibition

in a study of the Prohibition Movement published in 1965, I was happy to reflect many ideas from the exciting research on Prohibition which had then only recently appeared, particularly Andrew Sinclair, Prohibition:The Era of Excess ( Boston, 1962); James H. Timberlake, Prohibition and the Progressive Movement ( Cambridge, Mass., 1963); and Joseph R. Gusfield, Symbolic Crusade:Status Politics and the American Temperance Movement (Urbana, Ill., 1963). In this present study I have tried to reevaluate these ideas and to integrate my reevaluation with the new approaches to social history which are now having a profound influence on most thinking and writing about the American past. For my purposes, the most significant of these recent approaches have been Roland Berthoff, "The American Social Order:"A Conservative Hypothesis, American Historical Review 65 ( 1960): 495-514; Philippe Ariès, Centuries of Childhood:A Social History of Family Life ( London, 1962); Dwight B. Heath and others in David J. Pittman and Charles R. Snyder , eds., Society, Culture, and Drinking Patterns ( New York, 1962); Robert H. Wiebe, The Search for Order ( New York, 1967); Joseph Gusfield and others in John Braeman, Robert H. Bremer, and David Brody, eds., Change and Continuity in Twentieth-Century America:The 1920's (Columbus, Ohio, 1968); Craig MacAndrew and Robert B. Edgerton, Drunken Comportment:A Social Explanation ( Chicago, 1969); Gilman Ostrander, The Rights of Man in America ( 2d ed., Columbia, Mo., 1969) and American Civilization in the First Machine Age, 1890-1940 ( New York, 1970); John Lukacs, "TheBourgeois Interior"
