Alcohol production and consumption throughout U.S. history, and more particularly in El Paso, Texas, as it relates to social norms theory

Jennifer Heidi Matthews, University of Texas at El Paso

Abstract

This thesis traces the history of alcohol production and consumption throughout U.S. history by following the course of the four major periods of relative equilibrium in social norms that the country has experienced. It uses this socio-historiography as a platform to understand how national trends in alcohol production and consumption were experienced along the border in El Paso, Texas, in a very unique fashion. The thesis aspires to augment El Paso's pride and sense of identity by building on knowledge of local history, customs, and norms.^
