Drink and be Damned celebrates the 100th anniversary of the start of Prohibition on January 17, 1920 by looking at an era that has often been captured in grainy black and white pictures of people like Al Capone and barrels of whisky being smashed by Prohibition agents.

Over the years, this era has become romanticized as a special time in American history and the flavor of the time has been brought back to life in movies like 'The Godfather' and 'The Untouchables' and by reopening, or recreating, some of the speakeasies used at the time in cities like New York and Chicago.

Dozens and dozens of books have been written about Prohibition but this book aims to take a wider look at not only some of the people and the places associated with Prohibition but how some of the events that happened in and around the time created a momentum of change that can still be felt today for not only the individual but also society as a whole both in America and around the world.

If you are starting this book with the innocent eyes of a Prohibition virgin - learning about this amazing era for the first time - you might think that the thought of life without alcohol was going to be a life without light at the end of the tunnel but nothing could have been further from the truth.

The 1920s was, in fact, a magical moment in the history of America for people who lived through it. These people might have been 'innocent' bystanders enjoying a drink of whisky in a speakeasy while they listened to Jazz or they might have been at the forefront of change and became icons of the time.

Whoever they were, and whatever part they played, they all added an energy and excitement to a time that was also known as the Roaring Twenties or the Lawless Decade.

This was a time of great social change and innovation, a theme that will be explored here, where the spirit of America and its people changed forever and the world took notice and changed with them.

Descriere RO Drink and be Damned sarbatoreste 100 de ani de la inceputul interzicerii la 17 ianuarie 1920, analizand o epoca care a fost adesea surprinsa in imagini alb-negru granulate ale unor oameni precum Al Capone si butoaie de whisky spulberate de agentii de interdictie. anii, aceasta era a devenit romantizata ca o perioada speciala in istoria americana si aroma vremii a fost readusa la viata in filme precum „Nasul” si „Neatinsul” si prin redeschiderea sau recreerea, unele dintre talkeasies folosit la vremea respectiva in orase precum New York si Chicago. Au fost scrise zeci si zeci de carti despre interdictie, dar aceasta carte isi propune sa arunce o privire mai larga nu numai asupra unora dintre oameni si a locurilor asociate interdictiei, ci si asupra modului in care unele dintre evenimente care s-a intamplat in si in jurul timpului a creat un impuls de schimbare care poate fi resimtit si astazi nu numai pentru individ, ci si pentru societate in ansamblu, atat in America, cat si in intreaga lume. Daca incepeti aceasta carte cu ochii inocenti ai unei fecioare de interzicere - afland pentru prima data despre aceasta era uimitoare - ai putea crede ca gandul la viata fara alcool va fi o viata fara lumina la capatul tunelului, dar nimic nu ar fi putut fi mai departe de adevarul.Anii 1920 au fost, de fapt, un moment magic in istoria Americii pentru oamenii care au trait-o.
