Product description

Review

'This is a clever book. It shows how many hidden forces are at work - political, social, economic - when you sit down for dinner.' The Times 'Not a history of any one food but a history through food... With Standage it is not what changes in food that matters, but rather what food changes. And it's not just one food lifting and guiding history, but what Adam Smith might have called the invisible forkA" of food economics.' New Scientist 'Highly readable, thought-provoking' Scotsman 'Erudite and thoughtful - An important contribution to the debate on food - A book of real significance.' Scotland on Sunday

Book Description

'A fascinating history of the role of food in causing, enabling and influencing successive transformations of human society... This is an extraordinary and well-told story, a much neglected dimension to history.' Financial Times

The bestselling author of A History of the World in 6 Glasses brilliantly shows how foods have transformed human culture through the ages. This book is a must-read for readers of books by Simon Winchester and Felipe Fernandez-Armesto.
