Dangerous Tastes: The Story of Spices

This fascinating book discusses how the search for plant spices and aromatics is woven into, and in some cases has driven, human history. Plant aromatics are believed to be the first commodities of trade. Colonial powers fought major wars and enslaved entire populations to control rare spices now easily found in any grocery store. A fresh perspective on exotic plant materials that have had consequences from pain to pleasure, disaster to triumph. Any lesson or discussion of botany can be enhanced with excerpts from this amazing reference book.
