Summary

Focusing on Belgium from the mid-nineteenth century until the First World War, Vleugels presents a study of the drunkard in society. Shifting attitudes and medical advances are documented and analyzed within the context of wider social and political change. The study is unique in covering the whole of Belgium - both Flanders and Wallonia - and for its focus on the role of drink in the formation of class, gender and national identities.
