Description - Pubs and Progressives by David W. Gutzke

Inspired by the Progressive belief that the physical environment influenced moral behavior, late nineteenth century British brewers set to work reinventing the pub. They found ready allies among not only government officials, but religious leaders, social workers, journalists, the landed classes, and even the royal family. Surprisingly, these reform-minded brewers acted not only of fear of prohibition or nationalization, but, David Gutzke argues, out of a genuine belief in the possibility of social betterment. In the process, they sought to win respectability for the pub and attract a broader clientele.
