Prohibition in the United States: A History From Beginning to End

https://www.amazon.com/Prohibition-United-States-History-Beg...
Prohibition in the United States* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.For thirteen years, from 1920 to 1933, the transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages were prohibited in America. This “Noble Experiment” was undertaken because its supporters believed that alcohol was the single major cause of both crime and poverty. They believed that prohibiting alcohol would lead to the end of poverty and slum housing in the United States and that prisons and jails would no longer be needed. However, the precise opposite proved to be true. Prohibition led directly to rising crime rates, widespread illegal behavior amongst ordinary Americans, and a loss of respect for laws, law enforcement, and for the apparatus of government. How could something based on such good intentions go so disastrously wrong? Inside you will read about...✓ Alcohol in Colonial America✓ Prohibition Propaganda✓ The Noble Experiment✓ Life under Prohibition✓ Organized Crime and Corruption✓ Repeal DayAnd much more!This book tells the story of the temperance movement in America, of its rise over a period of one hundred years to encompass the growing women’s movement, and how it eventually attained its goal in 1920. It tells the story of Prohibition itself, of how people exploited loopholes in the law to continue drinking legally, and of how they simply ignored the law and drank illegally. It tells the story of the bootleggers and corrupt officials who made fortunes from Prohibition and the politicians who supported and attacked it. This is the story of a bold experiment undertaken for the very best of reasons which led to the worst of outcomes.

Leon Trotsky: A Life From Beginning to End

https://www.amazon.com/Leon-Trotsky-Life-Beginning-End-ebook...
Leon Trotsky* * *Download for FREE on Kindle Unlimited + Free BONUS Inside!* * *Read On Your Computer, MAC, Smartphone, Kindle Reader, iPad, or Tablet.The man that history came to know by the name of Trotsky has the well-established legacy of being one of the most mysterious of all the cast and characters involved with the Russian Revolution. If the Russian Revolution was a Shakespearean tragedy, Trotsky would undoubtedly be cast into the role of an Othello or King Lear type figure who means well but seems to hamstring himself with his never-ending ideological speculation and theorizing. Inside you will read about...✓ A Prisoner of War✓ Putting a Stop to World War I✓ The Execution of the Last Tsar✓ Russia Under Siege✓ Stalin Takes Over✓ Trotsky’s Exile Begins✓ Trotsky’s Last TestamentAnd much more!In many ways, Trotsky could be said to be a brilliant thinker that was miscast in the wrong role. Almost seeming to refute Plato's idea of the philosopher king, Trotsky appeared to be just a little bit too introspective for his own good. While the likes of Joseph Stalin were taking action and seizing the reins from Lenin, Trotsky seemed to be lost in his thought. This book takes a look at the great mind that the Russian Revolution forgot, Leon Trotsky.
