Product Description
Brimming with detailed research and irreverent character sketches, Rum looks at not just how much was drunk in colonial Australia (a lot!), but also the lengths people went to get their hands on it, the futile efforts of the early governors to control it, and the often disastrous and/or absurd consequences of its consumption.
Those consequences aren't just in our past, Murphy goes beyond foundation stories to look at the legacy our love affair with alcohol has created, from binge drinking to lockout laws, and from prohibition to urinating on the parliamentary carpet.
So here's to Rum, for making bad decisions look like a good idea at the time.
