It has acted as a tool of social transformation, political organization, geopolitical competition, industrial development, military conflict and economic expansion. In AnEdible History of Humanity Tom Standage serves up a hugely satisfying account of ways in which food has, indirectly, helped to shape and transform societies around the world.
