Sugar: A Bittersweet History
Penguin Canada, 2008 - 453 páginas
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.

Was disappointed in this, although it did have its moments. Parts were undigested, and it lacked a real overview and global perspective somehow. That being said, i devoured the detail on the West Indian lobby and British sugar traders. Leer comentario completo
