Empires of Food


A lively account of the key role which food and foodways have played in human history from the earliest cities to the present day. It takes the form of a series of thematically linked case studies comparing the ways which different civilizations have dealt with challenges such as intensifying farming, irrigation, storage, and food security, as well as what happens when things go wrong.
