Sugar Changed the World

Sugar Changed the World
Aronson, Marc; Budhos, Marina Tamar

Chronicles the human pursuit of sugar to satisfy our collective sweet tooth. The book describes this history in terms of ages, beginning with the Age of Honey, built on local growth and consumption of comestibles; through the Age of Sugar and its slave-supported "factory" plantation method of production; and into a period of science and freedom, when enslaved workers claimed their human rights and production of sweeteners shifted from the field to the lab.


Traces the panoramic story of the sweet substance and its important role in shaping world history.
