The New Temperance
The author compares the current "temperance "movements (against drugs, smoking, alcohol, teen pregnancy, pornography, fatty foods, and even politically incorrect language) with similar movements in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. The book addresses why the new campaigns emerged after the supposed freer days of the 1960s, and why these issues are popular in America.
