Reviews

A brilliant and thought-provoking history of sugar and its ironies -- Bee Wilson * Wall Street Journal *
As an historian of slavery, Walvin is well-versed in the triangular trade and explains the role of sugar cane in bringing Africans to the Caribbean. His survey of sugar in our lives is very readable. -- Katrina Gulliver * Spectator *
A convincing, deep history of this (in)famous product . . . This is not simply the tale of those who toiled to produce sugar . . . Something more than just a scholarly text, this study could not be more timely -- Laura Sandy, Lecturer in the History of Slavery at the University of Liverpool * History Today *
This study could not be more timely. -- Laura Sandy, Lecturer in the History of Slavery, University of Liverpool
A refreshingly historical look at a substance we often take for granted * History Revealed *
Former history professor James Walvin's latest book aims to untangle the social, political, and economic history of sugar, a commodity that began as the preserve of the elite, but which now saturates cultures the world over' * NZME *
An 'entertaining, informative and utterly depressing global history of an important commodity . . . By alerting readers to the ways that modernity's very origins are entangled with a seemingly benign and delicious substance, How Sugar Corrupted the World raises fundamental questions about our world.' -- Sven Beckert, the Laird Bell professor of American history at Harvard University and the author of Empire of Cotton: A Global History * New York Times *
