Sugar: a bittersweet history
Penguin Canada, Jan 30, 2008 - 453 pages
Sugar: A Bittersweet History offers a perceptive and provocative investigation of a commodity that most of us savour every day yet know little about. Impressively researched and commandingly written, this thoroughly engaging book follows the history of sugar to the present day. It is a revealing look at how sugar changed the nature of meals, fuelled the Industrial Revolution, generated a brutal new form of slavery, and jumpstarted the fast-food revolution.

Great history of the slave trade involving this global product. If you want to be disgusted and educated, a must read.

Sugar cane = slavery. Not what I expected (I expected something more like Salt and Cod) but it was interesting none the less.
