Reviews

"McCook makes crucial contributions to a number of related fields that usually don't intersect: history of science, global history, and commodity studies. His decision to focus on the science of plant disease and the politics and institutions related results in a welcome challenge to the anthropocentrism that too often dominates the study of history. With stunning breadth of research and inquiry, this is a rich and original work." -- Steven C. Topik, author (with Allen Wells) of Global Markets Transformed: 1870-1945
"Coffee Is Not Forever is top-notch scholarship that provides a rare pan-tropical analysis of the interactions of people, plants, and pathogens in the coffee regions of Africa, Asia, and Latin America. This book will be of immense value to readers interested not only in coffee, but also environmental and commodity histories more broadly. Like all great transnational histories, it is both connected and comparative. And for the latte generation, this book may forever change the way they think about robusta coffee." -- John Soluri, author of Banana Cultures: Agriculture, Consumption, and Environmental Change in Honduras and the United States
