Summary
  • "From outlawing bowling in colonial America to regulating violent video games and synthetic drugs today, Mark Stein's Vice Capades examines thenation's relationship with the actions, attitudes, and antics that have defined morality. This humorous and quirky history revealsthat our views of vice are formed not merely by morals but by power. While laws against nude dancing have become less restrictive, laws restricting sexual harassment have been enacted. While marijuana is no longer illegal everywhere, restrictive laws have been enacted against cigarettes. Stein examines this nation's inconsistent moral compass and how the powers-that-be in each era determine what is or is not deemed a vice. From the Puritans who founded Massachusetts with unyielding, biblically based lawsto those modern purveyors of morality who currently campaign against video game violence, Vice Capadeslooks at the American history we all know from a fresh and exciting perspective and shows how vice has shaped our nation, sometimes without us even knowing it"--
  • "From the founding of Plymouth Colony to the present day, "Vice Capades" looks at our relationship with the actions, attitudes, and antics that have separated morality from depravity"--
