This book examines the effects of alcohol on gender relations in traditional Europe, focussing on England, France, and Italy in the late medieval and early modern periods, roughly 1300 to 1700. While alcohol causes physiological changes that are scientifically verifiable, the work of anthropologists reveals that much of what passes for drinking behavior and drunken comportment varies from one society to the next. In traditional Europe, as in modern Western societies, drinking led to increased sexual activity for both men and women, and it inclined men to commit acts of violence. Despite male fears of female sexuality and despite patriarchal restraints, women still consumed alcoholic beverages, sometimes in gargantuan amounts. This widespread consumption of wine, ale, or beer illustrates the importance of alcohol in traditional Europe. Alcohol was the ubiquitous social lubricant, and alcoholic beverages formed an important part of most people's diets.… (mer)

Unsurprisingly, given the title, this is a study of attitudes towards drinking in western Europe (primarily focusing on England, France, and Italy) between roughly 1300 and 1700. Martin argues that people's attitudes towards drinking and drunkenness were socially constructed rather than merely physiological. Martin relies exclusively on previously printed sources, with no additional archival research; while the breadth of his reading is impressive, the fact that he never settles down to focus on one or two case studies gives the book somewhat of an anecdotal feeling at times. Martin's ultimate conclusion—that the more alcohol consumed, the more prone to incidents of violence and sexual activity people were—is unsurprising, but this is still a neatly written introduction to the topic which should be a useful starting place for scholars.
