A great research on spices and the history of colonialism
It is an informative book on less known facts about European expanssion;
greed, commerce, fashion and the emmergence of a globalized trade that started long time ago, Spices were used from embalming and as a medicine to petfumes, aphrodisiacs and as a 'panaceum universalis' or universal cure. The shrine of mystery as where the spices come from was mentained by traders in order to made them more alluring and desirable.
Well written and researched is a great piece of conversation about less known facts of what we pass by in the well stocked isles of any supermarket.
