This collection of essays covers the representation and practice of drinking a variety of beverages across eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Britain and North America. The case studies in this volume cover drinking culture from a variety of perspectives, including literature, history, anthropology and the history of medicine.


"This volume offers a welcome contribution to discussions of consumption, labour, and leisure. Its readers will discover much about different experiences of lubricated identities (established and emergent) and identity politics on both sides of the Atlantic between 1700 and 1900. (…) this volume satisfies the two chief requirements of any edited collection. It presents original research and it provokes ongoing debate. It is therefore to be convivially welcomed." - Conrad Brunstrom
