The Saloon: Public Drinking in Chicago and Boston, 1880-1920 - 28f07e7d-1c5f-40fb-0a7a-dc760c8c209f
Manufacturer: Perry R. Duis
The Saloon: Public Drinking in Chicago and Boston, 1880-1920

This colorful and perceptive study presents persuasive evidence that the saloon, far from being a magnet for vice and crime, played an important role in working-class community life. Focusing on public drinking in "wide open" Chicago and tightly controlled Boston, Duis offers a provocative discussion of the saloon as a social institution and a locus of the struggle between middle-class notions of privacy and working-class uses of public space.
