Book Announcement We Are What We Drink: The Temperance Battle in Minnesota (U of Illinois P, 2015)

Dear colleagues,

I would like to announce my new book We Are What We Drink: The Temperance Battle in Minnesota (Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 2015). The book features a discussion of the role of alcohol in the settlement of the Midwest. It also investigates how treaties with Native American tribes were used by the temperance reformers in the Progressive era to dry up Minnesota.

Hopefully, it will be of interest to you or your library.

Best,
