Booze is a history of Canadian drink and drinking from the European conquest to the present. Filled with photographs, ads, and cartoons, this multifaceted story features the liquor traffic, alcohol in Native communities, the law and prohibition, public drunkenness, the workingman's club, bootlegging, alcoholism, and a wide array of watering holes.

"To write about booze is to enter into a minefield of controversy," writes Heron, acknowledging the complexity of his subject. Booze is a work of engaging scholarship by one of Canada's leading historians.
