Thanks also to Sean Thackrey, winemaker, who let me use his astonishing private collection of wine books. 1. Tim Unwin, Wine and the Vine (London: Routledge, 1991); Rod Phillips, Wine a Short History (New York: Harper Collins, 2000). As in the work of B. Ann Tlusty, Bacchus and Civic Order (Charlottesville and London: University Press of Virginia, 2001), which explores the physical setting of drinking establishments in Augsburg and shifting official attitudes toward drunkenness, I hope to describe the medical literature on wine as a series of conflicting voices which could either promote alcohol for health or condemn it as a means of social control.
