Sugar: A Bittersweet History offers a perceptive and
provocative investigation of a commodity that most of us savour
every day yet know little about. Impressively researched and
commandingly written, this thoroughly engaging book follows the
history of sugar to the present day. It is a revealing look at how
sugar changed the nature of meals, fuelled the Industrial
Revolution, generated a brutal new form of slavery, and jumpstarted
the fast-food revolution.
