Sweetness & Power - Sidney Mintz

One of the best books exploring how society is shaped by food, focussing on a single illustrative product. The story of sugar is compelling, frightening, and even with its roots in slavery and colonialism - still contemporarily relevant. 

On the reading list of every worthy food studies programme, this is a must read for anyone wanting to understand the anthropological strands of food.
