The History of Hooch (A Book Review)

by Daniel Rogov » Tue Jul 15, 2008 5:01 am

Writing in New York Magazine, Sam Anderson reviews Iain Gately’s new book, Drink: A Cultural History of Alcohol. Worth a read.

If you do go on to the next set of items on the page, about the "past lives" of certain beverages, take a bit of care, for not all there is accurate (e.g. at least two errors in the brief paragraph about the history of Champagne and one on the background of absinthe)
