dc.description It is proposed the American temperance cycles are the result of cultural clashes concerning alcohol use. Related articles on origins of drinking patterns and attitudes in western Europe from antiquity and the influence of the Roman Empire, its continued influence on modern society including American Prohibition cycles, alcohol control policies, attitudes and beverage preferences due to religion, climate, and European homeland can be found at the following IUScholarWorks links:;;;;;; en
dc.description.abstract It has been proposed that different drinking norms developed in northern and southern Europe during antiquity and that these patterns are still found today in the cultures overlying these areas. In terms of western European civilization and its colonies, anti-alcohol movements have primarily emerged in the Protestant Nordic and English language speaking culture. European immigrants to the New World brought with them their different drinking attitudes and practices to both North and South America. In North America—particularly in the United States—clashes between these divergent cultures and their drinking patterns have precipitated anti-alcohol, temperance, and prohibition cycles. en
