2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By M. Buisman on August 1, 2007
Format: Paperback
This book is a good read and will make you think twice about world history again. But with it's 250 pages it is too short and therefor it seems unfinished. It's a glimpse of what could have been cause you get the sense food has an even bigger and more important history.
