Product Description

Review

"'A well-researched, wide-ranging and fascinating book... Cowan adds rich colours and shades to a picture we had hitherto only in outline.' (Kevin Sharpe, Times Literary Supplement) 'Because the modern world was washed into existence on a tide of caffeine, the subject is too important to be left to historians of food and drink... Cowan is concerned with the political history of coffee houses and points to the heterogeneity of coffee house culture.' (London Review of Books) 'Erudite and persuasively argued, this work is based on a truly impressive range of primary and secondary sources, as demonstrated in the extensive bibliography.' (William Clarence-Smith, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London, Institute of Historical Research)"
