Drinking Around the World examines the history, culture, customs and present-day role of drinking alcohol in over 20 countries around the world. Describes the smallest, largest, busiest, oldest and most famous drinking spots on earth. Discusses the puzzling fact that all the Allied leaders in WW11 were major drinkers: Churchill, Stalin, Truman, and Roosevelt; while the Axis group: Hitler, Mussolini, and Tojo were all teetotalers. Outlines which city in the world has the most bars and which one has the best bars; which country has the largest and best fairs, the largest carnival, and the best fiesta. Answers why alcohol, rather than any other substance, is used throughout the world in every country, to celebrate, commemorate or honor all of life's important occasions, from birth and weddings to victories, and even death---and it's been used for thousands of years.
