[EAN: 9780252078088], Neubuch, [PU: University of Illinois Press, Urbana and Chicago], CHARLES D. THOMPSON JR., MOONSHINE CAPITAL OF THE WORLD, FRANKLIN COUNTY, VIRGINIA, IN 1930S AMERICA, GREAT CONSPIRACY TRIAL 1935, APPALACHIA'S LOCAL ECONOMY, BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN CULTURE, DEPRESSION, MISS ORA HARRISON, ELDER GOODE HASH, Cooking|Beverages|Wine & Spirits, History|United States|20th Century, 304 pages. Softcover. New book. VIRGINIA. A rousing tale of moonshine and conspiracy in Depression-era rural Virginia Spirits of Just Men tells the story of moonshine in 1930s America, as seen through the remarkable location of Franklin County, Virginia, a place that many still refer to as the "moonshine capital of the world." Charles D. Thompson Jr. chronicles the Great Moonshine Conspiracy Trial of 1935, which made national news and exposed the far-reaching and pervasive tendrils of Appalachia's local moonshine economy. Thompson, whose ancestors were involved in the area's moonshine trade and trial as well as local law enforcement, uses the event as a stepping-off point to explore Blue Ridge Mountain culture, economy, and political engagement in the 1930s. Drawing from extensive oral histories and local archival material, he illustrates how the moonshine trade was a rational and savvy choice for struggling farmers and community members during the Great Depression. Local characters come alive through this richly colorful narrative, including the stories of Miss Ora Harrison, a key witness for the defense and an Episcopalian missionary to the region, and Elder Goode Hash, an itinerant Primitive Baptist preacher and juror in a related murder trial. Considering the complex interactions of religion, economics, local history, Appalachian culture, and immigration, Thompson's sensitive analysis examines the people and processes involved in turning a basic agricultural commodity into such a sought-after and essentially American spirit. A Reading by Charles Thompson (Historical Photo Edit) from Marissa Katarina Bergmann on Vimeo. A native son of Franklin County, Virginia, author and filmmaker Charles D. Thompson Jr. is the curriculum and education director at the Center for Documentary Studies and a lecturer of cultural anthropology at Duke University. His other books include German Baptist Brethren: Faith, Farming, and Change in the Virginia Blue Ridge, and his latest film is Brother Towns/Pueblos Hermanos. "Thompson brings the area to life, offering a portrait of a place that the government forgot, a blue-collar town run amok with barefoot children and well-armed men. . . . A meticulous, exhaustive history of moonshining, poverty and Blue Ridge culture."--Kirkus Reviews "A well-researched and well-written study and a thought-provoking portrait of 1930s Appalachia."--Library Journal "This informative, engaging work wonderfully reveals the culture and colorful history of a region with intimate ties to the illegal production and distribution of alcohol during 'Prohibition.'"--Booklist "Thompson's book is eye-opening not only about the illicit liquor trade but also about the big stage on which moonshining occurred. He paints a rich picture of life in Virginia's mountains in the 1930s. . . . Moonshining has been written about before. But it's unlikely any previous treatment compares to Thompson's in doing justice both to the business and its setting in a certain American time and place."--Washington Independent Review of Books "A fabulous and thorough collection of stories, facts, drama, character portraits, and court proceedings, including a chronicle of the Great Moonshine Conspiracy Trial of 1935. . . . It reads smoothly and cleanly, like a tightly woven novel. And it's about far more than bootlegging, as Moby-Dick is about far more than whaling."--Garden & Gun "Thompson tells an important and colorful story."--West Virginia History "An informative and entertaining account of one of Appalachia's most enduring symbols, the moonshiner."--Virginia Magazine "An exceptionally passionate, sensitive, and complex analysis of Great Depression-era life in rural Virginia."--The Journal of Southern History "Worthy of the attention of both scholars and an interested public."--The Historian "Spirits of Just Men is an example of microhistory at its best."--H-Net Reviews "A wonderful book!

Spirits of Just Men - neues Buch

ISBN: 9780252078088

ID: 9780252078088

Following the end of Prohibition in 1933, demand for moonshine remained high due to taxes imposed on large liquor producers. Seeking to answer this demand were the distillers of Appalachia who, having established illegal networks of moonshine distribution under Prohibition, continued their activities and effectively skirted the federal liquor tax scheme. Spirits of Just Men chronicles the Great Moonshine Conspiracy Trial of 1935, held in Franklin County, Virginia, a place that many still refer to as theMoonshine Capital of the World." While the trial itself made national news, Thompson uses the event as a stepping-off point to explore Blue Ridge Mountain culture, economy, and political engagement in the 1930 illustrating how participation in the moonshine trade was a rational and savvy choice for farmers and community members struggling to maintain their way of life amidst the pressures of the Great Depression and pull of the timber and coal-mining industries in Virginia. Through Thompson's prose, local characters come alive as he pays particular attention to the stories of a key witness for the defense, Miss Ora Harrison, an Episcopalian missionary to the region, and Elder Goode Hash, itinerant Primitive Baptist preacher and juror in a related murdertrial. Thompson explores how local religious belief both clashed with and condoned the moonshine trade and how stills and the trade enabled a distinctive cultural formation in the region that goes far beyond the hillbilly stereotype alive today. Not onlyis his work based on extensive oral histories and local archival material, but Thompson himself is from the area and his grandparents were involved in not only the moonshine trade but the trial as well"-- Books, [PU: University of Illinois Press]
