Paperback / softback

Description

New York Times BestsellerFrom beer to Coca-Cola, the six drinks that have helped shape human history. Throughout human history, certain drinks have done much more than simply quench our thirst.

As Tom Standage relates with easy authority and charm, six of them - beer, wine, spirits, coffee, tea and cola - have had a surprisingly pervasive influence on the course of history during pivotal epochs.

From humankind's adoption of agriculture and the birth of cities to the advent of globalization, Standage reveals the intricate interplay of different civilizations by appreciating each drink as a kind of technology, a catalyst for advancing culture.

After reading his clever and enlightened book, you may never look at your favourite drink in the same way again.
