?Cowan's work fits the bill in many ways. It is easily the most thorough account of the social history of the British coffeehouse ever written. Adrian Johns, University of Chicago -- Adrian Johns

Cowans work fits the bill in many ways. It is easily the most thorough account of the social history of the British coffeehouse ever written.Adrian Johns, University of Chicago -- Adrian Johns

"Brian Cowan''s Social Life of Coffee is an engagingly written, lavishly illustrated, and meticulously researched book. It provides the most comprehensive account of the rise and accommodation of coffee and coffeehouse culture that is currently available. Cowan''s book will begin a number of important and intellectually fruitful debates about the rise and extent of virtuoso culture, about the nature and limits of the bourgeois public sphere, and about the gendered nature of social space in Early Modern England."Steven Pincus, Yale University -- Steven Pincus
