Praise

“Jenkins’s historical overview of the banana’s production, marketing, and transporting makes this book a strong contribution to the growing field of food studies.”—Publishers Weekly

“In a vivid and often funny history, Jenkins charts how shifting diets and nutritional standards at the turn of the century, as well as more recent changes in food marketing and distribution, propelled the Caribbean fruit to widespread popularity and iconic stature in American culture.”—Discover
