The author seeks to "detail the interiors, explain the changes in logistics and architectural style, and set the pub within the broader context of social and political history. Concentrating on London, the book traces the pub's development from the traditional tavern through the gin palace to its . . .efflorescence in the great boom of the 1890s as the trade sought to adapt to the new demands of city life, fight off temperance opposition, and make its fortune."
