Prohibition( Visual )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The banning of alcohol in America in 1920 was the result of nearly a hundred years of limited state and local prohibition. Apart from a few Muslim countries, the US is the only nation ever to have imposed total prohibition on its citizens. It was a monumental blunder turning America into a nation of law breakers. At the stroke of midnight on January 16th, 1920, the United States went dry. For the next 13 years it was a criminal offense to manufacture, buy or sell alcoholic liquor. Prohibition ushered in an era of violence and lawlessness. Not only did it fail to stop US citizens from drinking, it also gave rise to organized crime and rampant smuggling on an enormous scale. It enabled notorious mobsters such as Al Capone to amass incredible fortunes. No matter how much alcohol was destroyed, there was always plenty more to take its place. Liquor was smuggled into the U.S. by land and sea. Thousands of illegal breweries sprang up all over the country. Although they didn't realize it at the time, the authorities were fighting a loosing battle. Corruption infiltrated every level of society. Intense rivalry between gangs often spilled over into bloody violence."--Transcript

Completely landlocked, the mountainous country's neighbors include Georgia, Dagestan, Ingushetia and Stavropol Krai.
