An Edible History of Humanity Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


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.

In An Edible History of Humanity Tom Standage serves up a hugely satisfying account of ways in which food has, indirectly, helped to shape and transform societies around the world.

It is a dazzling account of gastronomic revolutions from pre-history to the present.
