   schema:description ""Employing previously unexamined archival evidence, Kyvig calls attention to a little-known but broad-based bipartisan movement led by the Association Against the Prohibition Amendment and the Women's Organization for National Prohibition Reform. These organizations and their allies amassed political power, particularly within the Democratic party. In the midst of the Great Depression they engineered a complicated, yet very democratic process of formal constitutional change, in the end achieving the only amendment reversal in U.S. constitutional history."--Jacket."@en ;
