Random Bibliography

Students beware!  This bibliography is just what it claims to be:  random.  It is not bal-lanced, the cited materials are not of uniform reliability, and the authors are not all equally impartial.  Many advocacy pieces are deliberately included, to reflect the social ambience of the Prohibition Era, in addition to the scholarly pieces. Part of your responsibility is to evaluate the material on the bases of the authors’ reputations and the publishers’ reputations, in addition to judging the internal consistency and reli-ability of each work.
     When compiling your own bibliographies, be sure to cite some references not in-cluded in the following list (if your teacher decides that you just copied this list, you’ll get an “F” for effort).
