An Edible History of HumanityLarge Print - 2009
Throughout history, food has done more than simply provide sustenance. It has acted as a tool of social transformation, political organization, geopolitical competition, industrial development, military conflict, and economic expansion. The author provides an account of how food has helped to shape societies around the world, from the emergence of farming in China by 7,500 BC to today's use of sugar cane and corn to make ethanol.
