Gin by Lesley Jacobs Solmonson reviewed in the Guardian

'The author of this effervescent little history traces modern gin's origins (as the Dutch drink genever) and its subsequent use for "medicinal" purposes and in the military ("Dutch courage"), and its demonisation during the London gin panic. "Never again," the author writes wistfully, "would the city of London be as consistently intoxicated as it was between 1720 and 1751." – The Guardian

Gin: A Global History is available here (USA) and here (UK and rest of world), and now as an ebook for Amazon Kindle or an epub reader.
