    Review quote
    "A compelling case study of the attempt to create what we would call today an alcoholism recovery center. The product of two of the most distinguished scholars in the field of addiction studies, the book's importance lies in the fact that the Inebriate Asylum was the first institution of its kind in America and the material relating to its rise and fall is both vivid and intriguing."
