Here is the full, rollicking story of those thirteen years, taking us back to the Jazz Age and its flappers, to the "beautiful and the damned" who drank their lives away in speakeasies; to the Saint Valentine's Day massacre, and to the bootleggers, rumrunners, and high-living gangsters who flagrantly and defiantly flouted the law; to a lady from a Kansas City knitting circle who single-handedly axed a saloon to splinters; to teetotaler Henry Ford's Detroit, where Ford had homes searched to make sure his workers were dry. And, for the first time, Prohibition reveals the full story of George Remus, lawyer turned kingpin of the bootleggers, whose influence reached into the highest echelons of government

The good Frenchman : the true story of the life and times of Maurice Chevalier by Edward Behr( Book )

5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Here is the dashing vaudeville performer who was catapulted into Hollywood superstardom in the early 1930s as the world's number one heartthrob, with a private life to match his screen image. Here, too, is the fading star in France during World War II, accused, amid great controversy, of collaborating with the Nazis and, ironically, later blacklisted in the United States in the 1950s for supposedly having communist sympathies. We then watch a vindicated Chevalier returning to America to enjoy perhaps his greatest success of all time in the hit movie musical Gigi. Ultimately, we observe his final haunted years - almost a summation of the dark side of a personality writ large on the stages and silver screen of modern times

L'Amérique hors-la-loi : la folle épopée de la prohibition by Edward Behr( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in French and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'expérience dura douze ans, de 1920 à 1933, l'importation, la vente et la consommation d'alcool ont été strictement interdites aux Etats-Unis. Les contrevenants risquaient de lourdes peines. Du moins en théorie. L'initiative se révéla un désastre national. Cette coalition contre nature de puritains, de féministes et autres idéalistes provoqua une corruption généralisée, un mépris pour la justice et la naissance du gangstérisme. Bref, l'Amérique sort transformée et meurtrie de cette bataille perdue d'avance. En terminant, on ne peut s'empêcher de faire le lien entre la lutte contre le tabagisme ou la drogue et la futilité de la législation comme arme absolue
