Drinking in America: Our Secret History

In DRINKING IN AMERICA, bestselling author Susan Cheever chronicles our national love affair with liquor, taking a long, thoughtful look at the way alcohol has changed our nation’s history. This is the often-overlooked story of how alcohol has shaped American events and the American character from the seventeenth to the twentieth century.

Seen through the lens of alcoholis

Seen through the lens of alcoholism, American history takes on a vibrancy and a tragedy missing from many earlier accounts. From the drunkenness of the Pilgrims to Prohibition hijinks, drinking has always been a cherished American custom: a way to celebrate and a way to grieve and a way to take the edge off. At many pivotal points in our history-the illegal Mayflower landing at Cape Cod, the enslavement of African Americans, the McCarthy witch hunts, and the Kennedy assassination, to name only a few-alcohol has acted as a catalyst.

Some nations drink more than we do, some drink less, but no other nation has been the drunkest in the world as America was in the 1830s only to outlaw drinking entirely a hundred years later. Both a lively history and an unflinching cultural investigation, DRINKING IN AMERICA unveils the volatile ambivalence within one nation’s tumultuous affair with alcohol.

    There are a lot of interesting theories here, but they’re mostly conjecture and extrapolated from very little real evidence. It’s also sloppily written, frequently repeating the same phrases or bits of information, breaking chronology in confusing ways, and burying important information in service of Cheever’s theories which are fairly clearly founded in her adherence to Alcoholics Anonymous.

    I really wanted to enjoy this, but I found it very difficult and I really can’t recommend it.

    review of another edition

    I love thematic histories. There is just something really awesome about having a cohesive thread connecting the individual stories/eras, etc. This is my second thematic history of US and the first good one, the other one connected through guns, which is arguably just as American. Or not. At least not according to this book, which makes drinking seem more American than guns, baseball and peanut butter together. Cheever, who has an impressive pedigree as both writer and drinker, starts with the pi

    This is a good book, entertaining and well written. But I’m sure Susan Cheever would agree that, as a historian, her first duty is to the facts. A factual error, even if minor and not related to the central premise, creates a red flag, and is apt to make the reader view the rest of the work with suspicion. Unfortunately, Ms. Cheever makes several.
    Early in the book, in referring to Benedict Arnold’s treason, she writes that it occurred “a few years after Ticonderoga, after the surrender at Yorkto
