Irish pub (book review)

In the New York Times, James Oliver Curry reviews Bill Barich, A Pint of Plain: Tradition, Change, and the Fate of the Irish Pub (Walker), here.  There also is a link to what seems to be the historical part of the book, chapter 4, here.  This seems to be a St. Patrick's Day choice for a review, and Curry is more interested in the topic than impressed by Barich's take on it.
