Product description
From the Back Cover

This open access book surveys drinking in Britain between the Licensing Act of 1869 and the wartime regulations imposed on alcohol production and consumption after 1914. This was a period marked by the expansion of the drink industry and by increasingly restrictive licensing laws. Politics and commerce co-existed with moral and medical concerns about drunkenness and combined, these factors pushed alcohol consumers into the public spotlight. Through an analysis of public and private records, medical texts and sociological studies, the book investigates the reasons why Victorians and Edwardians consumed alcohol in the ways that they did and explores the ideas about alcohol that circulated in the period. This book shows that they had many reasons for purchasing and consuming alcoholic substances and these were driven by broader social, cultural, medical and commercial factors. Although drunkenness may have been the most visible consequence of alcohol consumption, it was not the only type of drinking behaviour. Alcohol played an important social role in the everyday lives of Victorians and Edwardians where its consumption held many different meanings.

"the book investigates the reasons why Victorians and Edwardians consumed alcohol in the ways that they did"

That's probably a lot easier to answer than answering why in the 21st century groups of men consume alcohol in the ways they do. I mean who came up with the "funnel with tube to backside and pour" technique. Are they trying to get their bottoms drunk? Does it have a reverse drunken effect?

Or the peeing in a glass, filling the rest with Strongbow and downing it in one method. Is this a form of recycling?

Have Amazon got a book to explain these trends?

It happens all the time. Lads nights in Ibiza. Stag nights, the nights some lads have out where they do that golf thing (scoring points for doing challenges).

I'm happy to say I legit don't have any mates and have no interest in finding any
Gin used to be for for the poor people, now it's a trendy drink with a tag to match.

People are pouring beer into their bums "all the time"

Then surely local pubs and bars should be capitalising by providing bum insertion equipment for a small fee, plus they would make a killing on wetwipes.

Where are you getting the information that this is trendy? Sounds like tabloid tat
