Product Details

Praise

“Shows how the intelligent analysis of the history of a single commodity can be used to pry open the history of an entire world of social relationships and human behavior.” –The New York Review of Books

“Like sugar, Mintz is persuasive, and his detailed history is a real treat.” –San Francisco Chronicle

“A fine book. It not only tells a fascinating story, it is also something of an antidote to the static quality of much anthropological writing.” -Jack Goody, The New York Times Book Review
