This book, called "The Drink Trade and the Nation", was written by A. H. Sewell and Arthur Barker, and published by the Western Temperance League in Bristol, England, in 1926. It concerns the production, distribution and consumption of liquor in Great Britain.
The authors' point of view is that the liquor trade is a "cause of national degradation, wastefulness and inefficiency", and that restrictive legislation should be enforced.
A 1927 newspaper clipping from the London Observer is included, as well as Reverend Barker's personal card.
The book measures 5 by 7-1/4 inches and contains 140 pages. The covers are cardboard, and the book is in good condition, with a tight binding. There is minor foxing on the endpapers and page edges, but no tears of creases. The front cover is sunned and lightly soiled.
