Vodka: A Global History

Patricia Herlihy
This book takes us for a ride through vodka's history, from its mysterious origins in a Slavic country in the fourteenth century to its current global popularity. On its way to world domination, vodka became ingrained in Eastern European culture, especially in Russia, where standards in vodka production were first set. It continued to flourish despite hurdles such as American Prohibition and being banned in Russia on the eve of the First World War. Vodka tells the story of how humble drink became an international industry.
