British Breweries from the Author: Lynn Pearson. " I have no pain now, mother dear, But, oh, I am so dry! Connect me to a brewery and leave me there to die." Breweries were large and striking buildings whose towering presence was often reinforced by their occupation of sites in the middle of towns. They were the flagships of a major industry and generators of some of the great business fortunes. Designing their breweries for architectural grandeur as well as for their function, brewers were well aware of the marketing value of their buildings and used them as advertisements. What is surprising is that so little attention has been paid to breweries, in contrast to other great industrial buildings such as mills and warehouses. Lavishly illustrated, British Breweries covers the whole of their history, from the country house brewhouses of the eighteenth century to the great breweries of Georgian and Victorian England, and to widespread disappearance in the twentieth century.

Strategic And Organizational Change from the Author: Alistair Mutch. The brewing industry, through its network of public houses, has a profound impact on the lives of much of the population of United Kingdom. Exploring the shaping of this industry in the years from 1950-1990, this book shows how it has moved from being largely concerned with the technical issues of production to being a key part of the retail industries. Drawing from theoretical traditions such as critical realism and new institutionalism, Strategic and Organizational Change demonstrates the considerable differences between major companies in the industry and the ways in which they have adopted a retailing approach. At the heart of the book is an exploration of the relationship between managerial choice and the structural constraints and opportunities in which that choice was exercised. Providing a new model of how history can inform the analysis of organizational strategy, the book draws on extensive archival material and adopts a far more historical approach than previous accounts of the area. Above all, Alistair Mutch presents a fascinating story of change in an industry which is taken for granted, but whose actions affect, for good or ill, the lives of millions.

Women Drinking Out In Britain Since The Early Twentieth Century from the Author: David W. Gutzke. Women's drinking has attracted enormous attention in recent years, but surprisingly this topic has not produced a comprehensive survey covering the twentieth century. Students and scholars alike can read this book to obtain a new perspective on women's drinking habits over more than a century, and the most critical factors promoting historical change. Within a chronological framework, the book offers a way of conceptualising how women's drinking habits changed in response to wars, ideology, advertising, moral panics, sexism, legislative initiatives, employment, age, ethnicity, technology, new drinking venues, and marketing strategies. It focuses clearly on the bulk of women who drank alcohol responsibly, but, given concern recently over 'binge drinking', devotes attention to the rise of the youth market and problems associated with it. Brewers' efforts to entice women into drinking beer regularly spanned the decades since 1945, but consistently failed, with men increasingly drinking wine with women both in bars and at home. Close attention is also paid to the image of drinking, projected in advertising, the mass media and films. Specialists will find this study vital for challenging traditional assumptions and offering original new interpretations about the diverse factors influencing women's consumption of alcohol. It provides students, both undergraduates and postgraduates, not just a wide survey, but new material, new ideas and new concepts in which to understand historical change for one huge group in British society. General readers, too, can easily read this book with both interest and enjoyment.

Alcohol And Moral Regulation from the Author: Henry Yeomans. Alcohol consumption is frequently described as a contemporary, worsening and peculiarly British social problem that requires radical remedial Regulation. Informed by historical research and sociological analysis, this book takes an innovative and refreshing look at how Public attitudes and the Regulation of Alcohol have developed through time. It argues that, rather than a response to trends in consumption or harm, ongoing anxieties about Alcohol are best understood as 'Hangovers' derived, in particular, from the Victorian period. The product of several years of research, this book aims to help readers re-evaluate their understandings of drinking. As such, it is essential reading for students, academics and anyone with a serious interest in Britain's 'drink problem'.
