Food in History - Reay Tannahill
Book - Reference

Reviewed By

Sue Dyson and Roger McShane

A sweeping history of food and its social consequences. While the cause and effects of food usage might be overstated, this still is a book to be taken seriously.
A positive point is the attention she pays to the Arab world and China where much of the significant work in the development of modern food was carried out.
Well worth a read.
